Seasons bring cultural and economic diversities in this world. Cold countries have an imagination of their own when it comes to sports. Skiing, ice skating, sledding, snowboarding and ice hockey are few of them offering a sense of awe. Regarded as the second-best Ice hockey competition in the world is the Kontinental Hockey League, or KHL.
Prior to 2008, KHL operated in the name of Russian Superleague. The Russian Superleague consisted of 20 teams, all of them Russian. The Superleague's history in turn traces long back to the Soviet Era, the eventual collapse of Soviet Union leads to the name change from Soviet League to International Hockey League. Once again, in 1996, the name was changed to Russian Superleague. The addition of teams from Belarus, China, Finland, Latvia and Kazhakstan led to the creation of Kontinental Hockey League.
The Western and Eastern conferences in the league each consists of 12 clubs. Western conference has the Bobrov and Tarasov divisions. Eastern Conference has the Kharlamov and Chernyshev divisions. Each division has six clubs. Top eight clubs from each conference will qualify for the play-offs irrespective of their position in the divisions. The selected teams from a conference will play each other in the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals stages. Each playoff round is played as best-of-seven series. The conference winners will play against each other for the Gagarin Cup.
Due to the minimal time frame, no one club holds monopoly in victories. CSKA Moscow has appeared in four finals and so is Ak Bars Kazan. However, Ak Bars Kazan is the most successive club with three Gragarin Cup wins. Sergei Mozyakin, the retired Metallurg Magitogorsk player holds the record for most goals in a regular season, 48. The Russian is a legend and also has the greatest number of assists of 20, shared with Chris Lee, in playoffs.
