“There are no reports on the future of the team’s trainer Andrei Nikishov. To recap, this is the second time Mr. Nikishov is being replaced in the midst of the season. He was first suspended in mid-December for two matches, and temporarily replaced by Alexei Vaulin, chief coach of Youth Hockey League ‘Dizelist.’ After one win and one loss, Nikishov returned to work,”it says.
At the moment, “Diesel” is placed 22nd in the tournament with 42 points, and has minimal chances to reach the play-offs.
