In the 2008/09 season , the team failed in the round of 16 as the winner of the preliminary round at HK Awangard Omsk , who qualified as the sixteenth team for the play-offs on the last day of the game. In the 2009/10 season , the team from Bashkiria with the newly signed head coach Slawa Bykow again proved to be the best team in the preliminary round and thus won the Continental Cup . In the play-off semifinals, the neighboring club Ak Bars Kazan was the stronger team after the series, which went over six games.
