The Russian has become increasingly frustrated and, after recent talks, suggested to the club ownership that the team might benefit from another voice with a different approach.

Khristich said in a statement: “This is a results business, and right now the results speak for themselves. I’ve been involved in hockey for a long time, and I know that sometimes a new approach can kick start a team.

“I’m hoping that my departure will help the club to improve its fortunes during the remainder of the season. I’ve enjoyed my time in Edinburgh, and I wish the club well for the remainder of the season.”
