Any word on what the structure of Ukrainian hockey will take since Donetsk will officially play in the KHL? From what I gather, most people on here doubt that a team will advance to the VHL to take over and act as a farm club for Donbass, but Donbass-2 will instead play in the Ukrainian league. However, what will happen as far as junior ranks are concerned? Will an MHL and MHL-B team be created or just one or will they not create anything like that?

IMO they need to have a natural progression. Maybe have a MHL-B team for their weaker prospects, MHL team for their best prospects, and when those players graduate they can play in the Ukrainian league until they're ready for the KHL.
