Agent asks Sibir for 1.5 times more for Legionnaires after changing limit in KHL

The new Legionnaire limit in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) has yet to come into effect, but when discussing their clients’ contracts, agents are moving on from other entries. It happened in Novosibirsk’s “Siberia”, according to “”.

The other day asked Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin a question and received confirmation that in the 2023/24 season in the KHL the number of legionnaires will be reduced from five to three per club.

Sibir has already negotiated to extend contracts with its foreigners. After that, the Legionnaires’ agent called the club’s management and said, “Multiply by one and a half”, heavily inflating the prices for his customers.

Aliosha Pilko, who represents the interests of Taylor Beck and Michal Tchaikovsky, said publicly on KHL TV on Friday: “Legionnaires prices will skyrocket after the limit change. But it will not be dictated by me, but by the market itself. Because seven or eight teams will apply for a good foreigner at a time, and he will go where they pay the most.

Sibir is currently fourth in the Eastern Conference. The team’s top scorers are Canadian: forward Taylor Beck (10+22=32 points) and defender Trevor Murphy (7+23=30). Slovak Michal Chaikovsky (4+7=11) is second in points among defenders.

This season, the earnings of the Siberian Legionnaires were distributed as follows: Beck – 45 million rubles, Murphy – 40 million, Tchaikovsky – 37.
