30 December 2013, 23:59

Traktor’s star forward Evgeny Kuznetsov has sustained an injury which has ruled him out of the 2014 KHL All-Star Game in Bratislava on January 11. Replacing Kuznetsov in the Team East roster is Magnitogorsk attacker Jan Kovar, who currently tops the KHL standings for assists (33), and with 47 points so far this season shares second place (with Brandon Bochenski) in the standings for leading points scorers.
