This season, the winners of games in the regular season of the KHL will be awarded two points.

At a distance meeting of the KHL Council of Directors on Thursday, August 30, the decision was taken to change the system for awarding points in the regular season. Fifteen of the 19 members of the council attended the meeting and the vote was passed unanimously.

Beginning with this season, all regular-season KHL games will use the following points system:

2 points – any victory
1 point – defeat in overtime or a shoot-out
0 points – defeat in regulation time.
