Straight from its foundation in 2006, Yugra has dressed competitive teams and had lot of success. After their first club season, Yugra was granted professional status and moved from the Vtoraya Liga into the Pervaya Liga. Their stay in the third level also lasted just one season, as Yugra won the championship for 2007-08. Another promotion followed, to the Russia's second-tier Russian Major League, where they won the league's championship in both seasons played.
In 2010, Yugra was granted admission in the Kontinental Hockey League.
On November 12, 2010, by interactive voting, a mammoth was chosen as the mascot for Yugra, painted in club colors. The remains of these animals in large numbers are founded in permafrost of the Yugra region. Moreover, the word mammoth (Russian мамонт/mamont) comes from local aboriginal Mansi language, where magynt means "earth-horn".
On March 28, 2018, KHL announced that two teams were going to drop out from the league, Yugra was one of the teams announced along with HC Lada Togliatti, Yugra was to compete in the second tiered VHL.
