MOSCOW, September 1 /TASS/. Dmitry Chernyshenko has denied he is planning to step down as the Kontinental Hockey League’s president, the KHL said in its press release on Tuesday.
Previous media reports said that Chernyshenko would quit his post on September 8 after a meeting of the KHL board of directors. The main contenders to the president’s post include Vyacheslav Fetisov and Roman Rotenberg.
"Some information resources publish unreliable and deluding information, which damages the reputation both of separate sport organizations and sport on the whole. It turns out that a number of media outlets does not perform their main function to provide objective information to the public thus calling their professional level into question. I am convinced that sport publications need to popularize sport rather than transmit groundless rumours," Chernyshenko stressed.
According to Chernyshenko, the KHL board of directors will consider amendments to the league’s existing rules in compliance with the Russian Sport Ministry decree on limits on foreign players that has taken effect.
"It’s going to be the only item on the agenda," the KHL head stressed.
Chernyshenko replaced Alexander Medvedev as the KHL president in November 2014. He became a member of the board of directors of the Russian Ice-Hockey Federation in August this year.
