SKA-Admiral trade fails due to new KHL rule

SKA-Admiral trade fails due to new KHL rule

As learned, the exchange between St. Petersburg players SKA and Vladivostok “Admiral” under threat of failure due to a clause in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) regulations.

The clubs are planning an exchange, as a result of which defender Nikita Kamalov and forward Stepan Starkov could move to Vladivostok, but the deal fails due to a clause in the KHL rules, according to which no more than three players can be exchanged from one club to another during the year. At the same time, the rule also takes into account unrestricted free agents, as well as those who played on this team a year ago.

Goalkeeper Nikita Bogdanov and defender Georgy Solyannikov had a contract with SKA for the 2022/23 season, after which they were exchanged in the summer of 2023. As a result, Bogdanov went to HC Sochi, and Solyannikov went to Lada. This offseason, both players became unrestricted free agents, moving on to Admiral. The KHL believes that over the past year both hockey players had a valid contract with SKA for the 2023/24 season, which begins on May 1, so only one place remains for an exchange with Admiral.
