Metallurg is very active on the transfer market this season as well.
They traded Brendan Leipsic and Nikita Korostelyov off CSKA and signed defensemen Linus Hultstrom, Alexei Volgin, and Alexei Maklyukov. Magnitogorsk also inked forwards Anatoly Nikontsev and Pavel Akolzin, as well as Josh Currie and Philippe Maillet from the AHL.
Koshechkin will also spend a further year with Metallurg. However, Plotnikov and Beck left the team, as well as Holm, Rasmussen, Nikolay Kulemin and Andrej Nestrasil.
