Playing careerEdit

As a youth, Lyubimov played in the 2005 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a team from Moscow.[2] He later played exclusively within the development program of HC CSKA Moscow from the age of 15. He played the first six seasons of his pro career for CSKA in the KHL. Undrafted, and following the 2015–16 season, he agreed to sign a one-year, entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on 11 July 2016.[3][4]

In the ensuing 2016–17 season, Lyubimov remained with Flyers through training camp to make the opening night roster. As a depth forward for the Flyers, Lyubimov appeared in 47 games totaling 4 goals and 6 points. With his rights retained by the Flyers, Lyubimov opted to return to CSKA after his solitary season in North America by signing a three-year contract on July 3, 2017.[5]

Prior to the 2018–19 season, Lyubimov was released from his contract with CSKA in order to sign a two-year deal with Metallurg Magnitogorsk on August 23, 2018.[6]
