KHL GIRLS!

khl_girls

Russia’s KHL (Kontinental Hockey League) features girls at every game!

The Kontinental Hockey League was founded in 2008 and is considered the top hockey league in Europe and second only to the NHL in the world. The KHL is comprised of 26 teams across 7 countries, 20 of which are based in Russia. The KHL is a top destination for many NHLers during the lockout for it’s skill-level and proximity to home for European NHL players. As this lockout continues on you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more about the KHL with some of the NHL’s biggest stars competing in the rival league.

Each team in the KHL plays a 56 game season with 4 games against teams in their division and and two games against non-divisional teams. Teams are divided into two conferences and  then divided into four divisions named after Russian legends: Bobrov Division, Tarasov Division, Kharlamov Division, and Chernyshev Divison. The playoffs run pretty similar to the NHL’s in that the top 8 teams in each conference qualify and play best-of-seven series until the two conference champions face off to be the Champion of Russia.

And here’s a little gallery of the girls that are at every KHL game. Do you have a favorite?
