CSKA Sofia have brought on a couple of additions for the second round of the Continental Cup, signing Oleg Kvasha, Vladimir Antipov, Mikhail Lyubushin, Dmitry Vlasenkov and Dmitry Bykov.

Kvasha comes in as the most well known name on the roster. Chosen in the third round by the Florida Panthers in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, the Russian recorded 50 points over two seasons with the club before getting traded to the New York Islanders in the deal that sent Roberto Luongo to the Sunshine State. Kvasha would play four and a half seasons with the Islanders before playing a short stint with the Phoenix Coyotes. After struggling to find a new contract in the NHL, Kvasha went on to play on nine teams in the final seven years of his professional career before finding himself out of a job for the current season.

Sofia, representing Bulgaria in the Continental Cup, finished with an impressive 3-0 record in the first round of the tournament. The club will face the Fischtown Pinguins Bremerhaven, Belfast Giants and Tilburg Trappers in Bremerhaven from October 17th-19th.
