KHL expansion – Neil Black and the UK?

A few weeks ago, during the KHL All-Star weekend, President of the KHL –  Dmitry Chernyshenko – spoke up and revealed that there are applications on his desk for new KHL teams across the Europe and Asia. He highlighted Sweden, Bejing, and the United Kingdom among others.

It went quiet for a little while, until recently when two of the countries mentioned above took off, each on different paths.

British Hockey Must Break Stereotype

The Elite League is not the first league to see an altercation spill over – where things should be left on the ice, tempers flare off it.

In each case, the results are always unsavoury. No matter the physical contact (or lack thereof), it reflects poorly on all involved, the optics painting an ugly picture.
