Moscow Region team once again missed the playoffs by a lot of points. Mytischi had a few really bright moments but the team catastrophically lacked consistency. On top of that Atlanty conceded way too many goals, even in the games against their main competition. Atlanty can be happy only about their narrow wins over renowned Junior Hockey League teams and a remarkable winning series in late October – early November. However, Vladimir Potapov’s team did not get off to a good start of the season. The team lost every chance of making the playoffs long before the end of the regular season, while an 11-game losing streak certainly didn’t boost the optimism of their fans.
Defenseman Artyom Tereschenko enjoyed a successful rookie season in Junior Hockey League, winning the Challenge Cup and scoring 22 points. However, he was heavy on the negative side in plus/minus category. However, a rare Atlanty player can boast a positive in the category this season. Dmitry Silantyev, who had made a name for himself in his debut season, managed to build on the success and topped the team in points. Sergei Goncharuk, who joined Atlanty from Taifun Primorie Region, and Andrei Smirnov, who had played for Sputnik Almetyevsk for two years, also chipped in a hefty number of points. As per tradition, another player joined the team from JHC Spartak Moscow – Yegor Sinegubkin was Atlanty’s starting goaltender this season.
