Extensive interview with former CSKA Moscow, Detroit Red Wings and New Jersey Devils star defenseman Slava Fetisov, now the Head of the Russian Federal Agency of Physical Culture and Sport, on Russia Today. Large part of the interview is devoted to the creation of the new Continental Hockey League and its ultimate goal to someday challenge the NHL as the best hockey league in the world.

    Why do they not have a web site or contact information for the league?

    The league is brand new and they do not have their own website yet. I am sure that it is being produced as we speak.

    In the meantime you can check the Russian Hockey Federation website and Wikipedia for more info about the newly formed league. The Wikipedia article also has links to some more details like this excellent article. Also, here’s the new KHL on Google Maps.

    When I have the time I will try to write an article about it which will contain links to every detail I can find.
