As tradition dictates, the KHL decided to create an emblem for the deciding stages of the fight for the League's most coveted trophy. We already know six of the sixteen teams that will battle for the Gagarin Cup: CSKA, SKA, Jokerit, Dynamo Moscow, Ak Bars, and Avangard.
The Gagarin Cup is the logo's central element, with a slight change in its graphical representation. For the 12th playoffs, the League developed a horizontal logo, plus custom emblems for each of the teams.
The postseason starts on March 1st, and The potential 7th game of the Gagarin Cup finals is scheduled for April 25th.
