In the Vysschaja Liga Chimik managed to win the championship title in the 2007/08 season after they had been able to prevail in the playoff final against Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg . Initially, with Awtomobilist and Barys Astana , only two teams from the second division were able to gain economic advancement in the newly founded Continental Hockey League , while Woskressensk was initially not considered as a sporting climber. On July 15, 2008, the KHL league management announced that Awtomobilist Yekaterinburg was excluded from the league due to ongoing financial problems. Chimik then received as reigning champion permission to rise to the KHL. In the summer of 2009, the team was excluded from the KHL because salary payments were still outstanding. In July 2009, the club filed for bankruptcy, trying to outsource the youth department and thus to maintain. In the 2009/10 season, the club took part in the game operation of the Vysschaya League , but received no license for the 2010/11 season. The club then dissolved the men's team and took part in the Molodjoschnaja Chokkeinaja League with a junior team as MHK Chimik . Since the 2015/16 season, Voskressensk has been back in the second-rate Vysschaya hockey league .

Chimik Woskressensk acts as the farm team of KHL participant HK Spartak Moscow .
