Elite Prospects Notes and Trivia
June 18th, 2014 - Due to the current situation in Ukraine, Donbass Donetsk will not play in the 14/15 KHL season. The club stays a full member of the KHL with the intention to return in 15/16. The players and staff contracts are "frozen" for one year in a sense that they will be valid for the 15/16. Meanwhile, the players have the right to sign 1-year contracts with other KHL clubs. (Kirill Bystrov - Eliteprospects.com, source: khl.ru)

July 2nd, 2015 - The club sends to the Ice Hockey Federation Of Ukraine application for participation in the 15/16 Ukraine season. Due to inability to play games in Donetsk, the club will play their games in Druzhkovka city. (Andrey Basevich - Eliteprospects.com)
