“Dead Dmitry Grigoryevich, we would like to inform you of our decision to withdraw ‘Dizelist’ team from the 2014-2015 youth hockey league championship due to lack of funds. We found required expenses inappropriate under the current structure of the competition. We would like to express our hope that this measure is only temporary and ‘Dizelist’ club will be able to take part in the 2015-2016 YHL competition. We expect to establish constructive dialogue between the clubs and the YHL management about the structure issue. Unfortunately, all attempts had failed during the last two seasons,” says the letter.
Its authors also stress that all players of “Dizelist” youth team will remain in the roster: they will play for “Diesel” team in the Supreme Hockey League, for Zarechny team “Soyuz” in the Russian Hockey League, and for the junior team in the Junior Hockey League championships.
“The players will get full practice and training,” points out the letter.
