On May 23, 2014, it was reported that Detroit Red Wings' pending restricted free agent centre Cory Emmerton had signed with HC Sochi to begin play in the Kontinental Hockey League with the 2014–15 season, becoming the first import player signed in franchise history.[1]

In the club's inaugural season, Sochi were able to qualify for the play-off to compete for the Gagarin Cup, finishing in 13th place overall of the KHL. In its debut playoff series, Sochi were swept in the first round by HC CSKA Moscow in four games. In the following 2015–16 season, Sochi climbed to 4th place in the Western Conference, but again dropped out in the first round of play-off, suffering another sweep at the hands of HC Dynamo Moscow.
