2009 KHL Junior Draft
The KHL Junior Draft 2009 Entry Draft was the first of the Kontinental Hockey League and was held in the capital of Moscow on 1 June 2009. At the event, according to the U.S. model, participated in 23 KHL teams. There were players from around the world to choose between 17 and 21.
In the first position of HK CSKA Moscow chose the defender Mikhail Paschnin from HK Mechel Chelyabinsk from the second-rate Wysschaja league.
The order of the draft corresponded to the inverse table of the 2008/09 season, with the exception of the novice Awtomobilist Yekaterinburg, who was allowed to choose as a last resort. Previously, the teams of Chimik Woskressensk Vityaz Chekhov and - who had been in the original order in first and second position - has been suspended due to non -filed documents in the league from the Draft. A total of four rounds were held. All participating teams were allowed all players 17-21 years choose, which were not protected at the time of the event or of other teams were already in another KHL team under contract. Graduates of schools that cooperate with any KHL team, could also be selected as graduates of schools that cooperate with a KHL team, but are not part of a junior team of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation. The remaining teams were allowed 15 players to "protect", which therefore could not be selected in the draft.
