There will not be a repeat champion in the KHL this season after Novosibirsk toppled Magnitogorsk 3-1 in Game Five to clinch a 4-1 series victory. Ex-Blue Jackets pick Sergei Mozyakin had Magnitka's only goal in the match. 24 year old Stepan Sannikov led the way for Sibir with 1 goal and 1 assist.

With Magnitogorsk's loss, Jaroslav Janus is the only remaining active prospect in a European elite league, with his club, Sparta Praha, advancing to the Czech Extraliga Semifinal round.
