To mark the end of the second week’s play of the tenth season of the Championship, The Kontinental Hockey League has named the best players of the week in four categories.

– Best goaltender was Alexander Yeryomenko (Dynamo Moscow), who helped the Blue-and-whites achieve two wins in two games. The 37-year-old Russian international recorded both the highest save percentage (97.56) and lowest goals against average (0.96) of any goalie in the League;

– Best defenseman was Andrej Meszaros (Slovan), who helped his team to victory in two out of three matches. The Slovak D-man contributed 4 (3+1) points and earned a positive rating in all three outings, ending the week at +3;

– Best forward was Nigel Dawes (Barys), who in three appearances added 7 (5+2) points to his account and merited a +4 for the week. His points haul – the highest of any player in week 2 - included a double against Severstal and two game-winners (the victims were Severstal and Torpedo), while his average ice time of 20 minutes and 40 seconds surpassed that of any forward in the League;

– Best rookie was 19-year-old Kunlun Red Star defenseman Pavel Vorobei, who was given three outings and celebrated victory in all three, ending each game with a positive rating on his way to posting a +4 for the week. His stats for the last seven days also include 4 shots, 5 blocks, an average of 15 minutes 46 seconds on the ice, and an assist against Traktor in Chelyabinsk – the first point in Vorobei's KHL career.
