In 2010 the team joined the Krasnodar League, where they played for two years. In 2013 the club, now operated under the name HC Rostov, turned professional and joined the Russian Hockey League.
During their time in the Russian Hockey League (which was renamed in 2015 to the Supreme Hockey League Championship), HC Rostov were a dominant force, finishing 1st in the regular season rankings 4 years in a row, and winning the VHL-B Championship in 2015, 2017 and 2019.
