The Russian hockey map that I did a couple of seasons is back up and functioning (or is at least in a somewhat presentable form), and you can get to it via the link on the bar above (next to “Russian Hockey on Social Media,” which I also encourage you to check out), which will take to the map and a few explanatory notes. The map by itself is viewable here. More to come — I still have leagues to add to it, and there will doubtless be some changes over the course of this off-season. Enjoy!
You will notice a new link on the bar at the top of this page! It’s a project I’ve been poking at for some time, and finally got finished, namely a list of links to the websites and social media accounts of various Russian hockey entities (leagues, associations, and teams)! Some notes:
- Teams are mostly listed in the leagues in which they competed in 2017-18, but Lada, Ugra, and HK Tambov have been moved to the VHL table, as they are expected to compete in that league in 2018-19. Other such changes will be made as we get official league rosters for next season.
- Over the summer, I will also be adding the teams from the Asia League and the amateur League of Women’s Hockey, and perhaps some other things as well (major media sites and the like).
- Links to websites are to the the “top-level” site for that team or organization, whatever language it may be in (usually but not always Russian). Links to versions of the site in other languages are included. Links to social media accounts are in the language indicated.
- Sites and accounts that have not posted new material since December 31st, 2017, are not included.
- I will be checking this and updating it regularly, but if you can fill any of the gaps on these tables, or spot any errors, please do let me know via the comments (here or at the page itself) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I think we will take this evening to get caught up on a few things going on in the world of Russian hockey right now! The past few days have seen some interesting coaching news in a couple of different leagues, as well as some tidings relating to the 2018-19 KHL goaltending picture (we were just talking about that, too!). Read on, for those stories and a few others!
A big day in the KHL today, as the league’s Board of Directors met to discuss the season just finished, and look ahead to 2018-19. And not only that — the BoD meeting was followed by the traditional Awards Ceremony that formally closed the 2017-18 KHL season. Read on, for quick write-ups of both events!
The on-ice portion of the 2017-18 Russian women’s hockey season wrapped up over the past couple of weeks with a couple of tournaments, and at the same time preparations for 2018-19 began in the Women’s Hockey League. Read on, for the crowning of the amateur national champions, and some other bits of news as well!
The dust has settled after last week’s conclusion to the Women’s Hockey League season, but there are still some things to talk about in this update! Read on, for some official recognition for champions Agidel, for an overdue international hockey update, and other notes.
For the first time ever, Agidel Ufa are champions of Russian women’s hockey! Agidel finished off a three-game sweep of arch-rivals Tornado Moscow Oblast in the Women’s Hockey Final today. The clinching game ended 4-1 in Agidel’s favour, with two goals off the stick of the illustrious Olga Sosina. A tremendous season for the team from Bashkortostan, and all congratulations to them!
Read on, for more on the Final and some other thoughts!
A few days ago we took a quick look at all the different Finals going on in Russian hockey this week, and some of that silverware that was under dispute has now been handed out! Read on, therefore, for some champions at the lower levels of pro and junior hockey, as well as a quick bonus update on some international hockey results from today.
Tomorrow sees the beginning of the Women’s Hockey League’s first playoff Final, as Agidel Ufa and Tornado Moscow Oblast meet for Game 1 of a best-of-five affair at the former’s home rink. We covered what happened in the semifinals here the other day; now, read on for a look at both of the finalists!
So what do we have to discuss in this update? Major things, including the first round of the first-ever Women’s Hockey League playoffs, the first-ever championship tournament in Russia’s amateur Under-18 league, and beginning of the second edition of the Women’s Under-16 European Cup. So read on!
