Atlant has officially confirmed that head coach Sergei Svetlov has been fired. Assistant coach Alexander Nesterov has also left the Moscow Region club, which currently languishes at the bottom of the Western Conference standings with just one point from five games.

Atlant general manager Alexei Zhamnov, who took charge of the team for the morning warm-up in preparation for Wednesday night’s match against Donbass, announced that the decision to part company with Svetlov was made by the board on Tuesday evening.

Alexei Kudashov has been installed as acting head coach for the forthcoming KHL Championship games.
