Thanks to the later start of the new year of the best hockey league in the world, Pardubice will be strengthened by forward Martin Kaut from Colorado. The 20-year-old pupil of Žďár nad Sázavu returns to Dynamo after two years. Before the 2018/19 season, after the NHL draft went to Colorado, the Avalanches in the playoffs were eliminated in the 2nd round after a 3: 4 defeat with Dallas. However, Kaut did not fit on the Avalanche roster to complete the NHL season and was preparing with Pardubice.
Both teams advanced from the semifinals without a fight, because their opponents were prevented from playing quarantine matches due to positive tests on the covid-19. Třinec was to play with Pilsen and Pardubice with Liberec.
