KHL season starts September 4

On Tuesday KHL Vice-President Vladimir Shalayev announced the release of the schedule for the 2012-13 season. It consists of 676 games, of which each time will play 52 games.

 
 
 
 
The main difference of this year's schedule from last is that every team will play two games (one home, one on the road) against each team in the league, plus two additional games against a pre-determined "rival".Among the determined pairs are CSKA Moscow - Spartak Moscow, Salavat Yulaev Ufa - Ak Bars Kazan and HC Lev Praha - Slovan Bratislava. This new structure means that divisional and conference alignments will be needed only for determining who will go to the playoffs and who won't.

The three newcomers to the league have all been placed in the Western Conference, increasing its number to 14 teams, while in the East the number remains at 12.

Western conference

Bobrov division: Vityaz Chekhov, Dynamo Moscow, Dinamo Riga, Donbass Donetsk, Lev Praha, Slovan Bratislava, SKA St. Petersburg

Tarasov division: Atlant Moscow Area, Dinamo Minsk, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, Severstal Cherepovets, Spartak Moscow, Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, CSKA Moscow

Eastern conference

Kharlamov division: Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg, Ak Bars Kazan, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, Neftekhimik Nizhekamsk, Traktor Chelyabinsk, Yugra Khanty-Mansiisk

Chernyshyov division: Avangard Omsk, Amur Khabarovsk, Barys Astana, Metallurg Novokuznetsk, Salavat Yulaev Ufa, Sibir Novosibirsk.

The winners of the divisions will be placed first and second in each conference.

The fegular season starts September 4 with Dynamo Moscow hosting Avangard Omsk for the Lokomotiv Cup, formerly known as Opening Cup. September 7 will be the Memorial Day of Lokomotiv.

The All-Star Weekend will be held in Chelyabinsk January 12-13, with the Game on the second day. Two games between SKA and Dynamo Moscow will be played in New York City at the brand-new Barclays Centre in Brooklyn January 19 and 20.
