He made his National League debut in 2020-21, playing 20 games there.

During these, he amassed two goals and as many assists for four points.

The left-hander had decided to return to the KHL, with the Chelyabinsk Traktor, after having experienced a bad training camp with the "Blueshirts" and being transferred to the American League at the start of the year.

In 19 games with the Traktor, Kravtsov hit the target six times and provided seven assists for 13 points. He also had 10 points (7-3) in 15 playoff games.
