Gagarin Cup is the name for KHL playoffs. (KHL is widely considered the second best ice hockey league in the world, after NHL.) In the last season, 20-years old Ilya Sorokin and 19 years old Ilya Samsonov played in the final. This is relatively young age for a goaltender. This made me wonder:

  • Who was the youngest winner of Gagarin Cup?
  • Who was the youngest goaltender, defenseman, forward to win this trophy?

(This is probably clear from the context, but I mean age at the time of winning the cup.)

I am posting a CW answer, feel free to edit it if there are younger Gagarin cup winners that I was able to find. (Or if you can find further references.)

I have searched among players listed as Gagarin Cup Champions at Elite Prospects.
