Andrey Razin named the main contender for the Gagarin Cup this season

Coach Andrei Razin in a conversation with , he expressed the opinion that Lokomotiv Yaroslavl will become the owner of the Gagarin Cup this season.

Severstal finished seventh in the regular season and lost to CSKA in seven games in the KHL Playoffs (3-4 in the series).

Razin has been working at Severstal since 2018, his contract expires on April 30, 2023. On Thursday, during the final press conference, he announced his departure from the Cherepovets club.

– Do you have a premonition who will win the Gagarin Cup?

– Now we have gained a lot of strength in CSKA, and they play with Lokomotiv. If Yaroslavl quickly overtakes them… Well, Torpedo will definitely drink a lot of SKA blood… Now I think Lokomotiv will reach the Western final.

In the East too, the picture is disconcerting. Magnitka is generally unpredictable now. Ak Bars is the favorite, but if they fly to Vladivostok twice, it will be very difficult for them.

In general, my prediction is that I would always predict that Lokomotiv will win the Gagarin Cup. Also, they’ve never won it before,” Razin told .

Gagarin Cup winners were Ak Bars (2009, 2010, 2018), Salavat Yulaev (2011), Dynamo Moscow (2012, 2013), Metallurg (2014, 2016), SKA (2015, 2017), CSKA (2019, 2022 ), Vanguard (2021).
