    Alexander Radulov Slashes His Own Coach In The Face (Video)

    Some of you may remember the name Alexander Radulov.  The Russian-born hockey player spent two seasons playing for the Nashville Predators from 2006-08, before retreating back to his home country to play for Salavat Yulaev of the Kontinental Hockey League, where he is free to slash his team’s coaching staff whenever he pleases. That turned […]

    13 Tragic Cases Of Athletes Killed In Plane Crashes

    Tragedy struck yesterday when the passenger plane carrying Russian hockey team Lokomotiv of the KHL (Kontinental Hockey League) crashed just after take-off, killing 43 people.

    Missed! (GIF)

    As far as failed hockey celebrations go, this has to be among the best of them. I couldn’t tell you the names of the players or teams involved here, but judging by their failed celebration, it doesn’t appear as though they have won many championships prior to this one. However, a part of me can’t […]

    Fan Attacks Backup Goalie During KHL Action (Video)

    There is no denying the fact that things can get pretty crazy on the ice in the Kontinental Hockey League, but perhaps nothing compares to what we have seen happening on the benches.  Last time it was the backup goalie dishing out the punishment.  This time it is the backup goalie taking it. During an […]

    9-Year Olds Partake in Bench Clearing Brawl in Russia (Video)

    This. is. not. good. Just a couple weeks after a massive brawl set the record for most penalty minutes in the KHL, a bunch of 10-year old Russian hockey players break out into a similar looking fight, making people who argue hockey is too dangerous for our youth actually seem somewhat smart. It’s heart-wrenching to […]

    Hockey Brawl Cuts Game Short; Sets Record For Penalty Minutes

    The KHL, or Kontinental Hockey League, is not exactly the cream of the crop when it comes to hockey leagues.  This Russian league generally takes on all players, be bad NHL players or over-the-hill ones.  That being said, the fights in this league look spectacular, way crazier than what we see here in the states. […]

    NHL Contract Vetoed By Alexei Semenov’s Wife

    Total Pro Sports – The no-trade-clause has become a rather interesting obstacle in the NHL over the past decade or so, but thanks to the wife of Alexei Semenov, there may be a new addition to player contracts which include a wife’s-acceptance-clause. Unfortunately for Semenov and the New York Rangers, they are the first to […]

  • Alex Ovechkin To Quit NHL For 2014 Olympics?

    Alex Ovechkin To Quit NHL For 2014 Olympics?

    Total Pro Sports – Winning the Stanley Cup is the goal most hockey players have when they begin playing the sport.  They dream of hoisting it (and maybe throwing in an expletive while they’re at it), having a pool party with it, and when that is all done, taking it to bed to spoon it […]

    Hedman And Hall Taken In KHL Draft, Tavares Passed On

    Total Pro Sports – If there ever was a league that could challenge the NHL, it is the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).  Yesterday during their draft of junior players age 17 to 20, they once again showed their willingness to compete with the biggest hockey league in the world.
