Category Archives: Weekly News Notes
Time again to see what the KHL teams have been up to over the last week. There were a couple of bits of sad news this time, as well as the usual roster shufflings and some interesting statistical notes as well. First however, we will delve into what, exactly, is going on in the video above! Read on…
Time once again for our weekly amble through the KHL’s 29 teams, so read on, for discussion of Monday’s enthralling top-of-the-table encounter, various comings and goings of players, and other such matters. But first watch the highlight clip above two or three times — it’s worth it!
The KHL got back to work last week, after pausing to allow the youthful selections to the Russian national team to compete in the Karjala Cup (they won it, too, going a perfect 3-0). Of course, that meant any number of interesting developments, so read on as we take a stroll through some of those, and also check in with the President of the KHL, and the President of Russia too, on hockey-related matters!
Time for another look at what each of the KHL’s 29 teams have been up to lately, as the KHL’s week-long break for international games is upon us (the league has no games scheduled between November 3rd and November 7th)! First of all, however, we turn our attention to Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, where quite a lot of rather unusual things happened in a short time this past weekend. Read on!
And herewith we start a new weekly thing here at the blog, as I attempt to find interesting and feasible ways to keep you more-or-less caught up on KHL news. My plan is, every Monday, to present you with one very short comment or news item or thought or random collection of words relating to each of the league’s 29 teams.
Read on, for the first edition of this new project!
Time to take a quick break from the previews in order to get a little bit of news out of the way. Schedules and full team lineups are now out for several different Russian leagues, and we have KHL pre-season hockey to talk about as well. Unfortunately, not all of the pre-season goings-on have been of the good variety… read on!
Wednesday was a bit of a white-knuckler for followers of the KHL, as the league had previously announced that July 6th would be when we would learn the full lineup of teams for the coming season. And so it came to pass — read on, for some discussion of what the KHL had to say!
Well, more clarity, in any case! The news actually arrived a bit quicker than expected — we had been looking to early July — but it is now official: Red Star Kunlun Beijing, the KHL’s first ever club based in China, have been formally accepted to the league and will take part in the 2016-17 season. While time is a bit short for the team to assemble its roster, the KHL season is still two months away, so the situation is not absolutley desperate, and a number of NHL and AHL players will be free agents as of late next week. Opportunity is there.
Read on for a bit more about Red Star Kunlun, and some other, more ominous, news about next season’s KHL lineup.
