The Kontinental Hockey League, the clubs, and the players’ union have agreed the following: as a tribute to the Lokomotiv players, coaches and staff tragically killed in the Yaroslavl disaster, the opening game of each KHL season between the Gagarin Cup winners and runners-up will from now on be known as the game for the Lokomotiv Cup.

On Monday, the 12th of September, Salavat Yulaev and Atlant will meet in Ufa to compete for the first Lokomotiv Cup. The game between the two teams on the 7th of September was abandoned when news of the tragedy in Yaroslavl came through.
