Russian Hockey Language Guide

khl russian hockey league logoThe KHL is not quite up to NHL standards, but the league is young and the money is there for it to become an equal in the near future. The KHL (Continental Hockey League) in Russia is currently home to a number of Ontario Hockey League alumni and former NHL players. The 24 team league has hopes of becoming a truly continental league by expanding to other parts of Europe in the future.

The official website, found here, is available in both Russian and English. However, the individual team sites are mostly only available in Russian. This post is the second in a series of hockey language guides. The written Russian language uses a completely ‘alien’ alphabet and can be a bit intimidating to westerners. This guide consists of 40 of the most popular headings and phrases you will find on a Russian hockey website. As always, if you have knowledge of the language and find any mistakes or believe something important to a hockey website should be added, please let us know by e-mailing us or adding it into the comments at the bottom of the post.
