To mark the concluding series of the play-offs and the season – the Gagarin Cup Final – the Kontinental Hockey League has named the best players of the round in three categories. The usual Best Rookie award is absent, as none of the young players was given the desired amount of ice time to qualify for the award.
– Best goaltender
was Mikko Koskinen
(SKA), who played in all five games of the final series, achieving one shutout, a save percentage of 94.89 and a goals against average of 1.40;
– Best defenseman
was Anton Belov
(SKA), who was also the finest defender of the Conference Finals. Anton provided the passes for three goals and finished the series with a +2;
– Best forward
was the series top scorer and MVP, Ilya Kovalchuk
(SKA), with a haul of 6 points (2+4).
