Alexei Kudashov (SKA) will be behind the bench for the Bobrov Division, and he will join a unique club of people who made it to the All-Star Game as both coach and player. The 2020 KHL All-Star Game will be the third similar event for Kudashov, who interestingly enough had both of his other participations in Moscow.
Alexei Kudashov, SKA's head coach:
- The announcement came as a surprise for me; I didn't even think about it. This is, for me, a great sign of appreciation for the work of my entire staff, team, players, and personnel. I participated in the very first All-Star Game in Moscow, and it was an incredible spectacle. My second time was in 2016. I hope that it will be a good prolongation of this tradition. Life as a second coach? If the league decided this way, then let it be. I'm a communicative person, and I'm ready to work with anyone.
