Kazakh champion Saryarka Karaganda has withdrawn from its participation in the 2023 IIHF Continental Cup.

Saryarka Karaganda, which finished the competition in second place in 2022, was originally seeded in Group E of the third round, which takes place from 18 to 20 November 2022 in Cardiff, Great Britain.

Due to Saryarka’s withdrawal, an additional team from the second round played this weekend in Angers, France and Asiago, Italy will qualify for the third round being the runner-up with the better record in Group C or D respectively.
