Within KHL, players will be able to change jerseys until December 25th. So far, the transition period has taken place until January 15th.In European leagues, according to IIHF rules, the deadline for changing the jersey is February 15th.

In December, the table is usually more balanced and the chance to participate in the deferral phase has more clubs than in mid-January.

“The owners of some clubs, on January 15, understand that their team is not going to play-off or has only a minimal chance, so they start to redistribute players, the leaders will strengthen other teams.We believe the assemblies should be completed during the Inter-Season and during the championship, the changes should only be the result of injuries or other exceptional situations, “Dirk Kurbitov, Vice-President of KHL, told Itar-Tass. >
