NOVO-OGAREVO, February 24 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressed his hope that the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) will be a serious rival to the National Hockey League (NHL).
“To a certain degree our KHL now is still a weak rival, but it is augmenting its potential and I am sure that in the future it will be a real, good rival to the NHL,” he said at the meeting with players of the hockey’s legendary 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union that marks its 40th anniversary this year.
