Probably Traktor will take over the MHL B side and will send their youngsters there, thus getting the second youth team they were wishing for.

As it stands:

- Donbass to KHL,
- Mechel to "heaven"

+ Buran Voronezh
+ team #23
+ team #24

So two spots for three cities (Karaganda, Krasnodar, Tver) to compete for.
Mechel will stay, there's also THK and one more team that applied, I thought
