– Of course, the season was extremely difficult. Even people who are far from hockey understand that. So, first of all, on behalf of the fans and everyone in the republic, thank you for the regular season. You finished second in the Eastern Conference. This is a high result, the second time in the last 12 years. Most importantly, you fought to the end, thrilling the fans with dynamic, fast-paced “rocket” play. Nobody just passed you. In a difficult period for the team, you have shown remarkable achievements.

I understand that in sport it’s like that: if you lose, then you lose. I myself live by the “score on the scoreboard” principle. But that’s no reason to be discouraged. We need to learn lessons and move on. All the inhabitants of the republic believe in you. Viktor Nikolayevich [Козлов], a special thank you to you. You took over the team at a difficult time. And they grew up with it. I’m sure you have a desire to move on and get better results next season, Khabirov quotes official site heads of the republic.
