is it because the KHL is in Latvia, Slovakia and Czech Republic now, so they just started using Latin letters to make it easier for everyone?
KHL adopted Latin before season 2010/11 or 11/12, dont remember correctly. It has NOTHING to do with lockout. I would agree with bold part + broadcasting to non-russian speaking countries as another reason.
