KHL: Yuri Mikhailis becomes head coach of Barys Nur-Sultan

KHL’s Barys Nur-Sultan officially announced the appointment of Yuri Mikhailis as the club’s new head coach. The contract with the specialist was signed for one year.

Mikhailis has worked in the Barys system for 13 years, previously coaching Barys-2, the Snow Leopards, and Nomad. In 2017, Nomad, led by Mikhailis, won the Kazakhstan Hockey Championship and earned silver medals at the 2017/2018 IIHF Continental Cup.

Last season, Yuri Mikhailis also worked with Nomad, which made its debut in Russia’s second-tier VHL (Supreme Hockey League). Mikhailis also worked as part of the coaching staff of Kazakhstan’s national teams of various ages.

The previous head coach of Barys Nur-Sultan, Andrei Skabelka, left the team at the end of the last season, which was completed ahead of schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic. Skabelka has since been signed as the head coach of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl.
