Kazakhstan clubs will be back in VHL?

After a 4-years hiatus, a Kazakh club could be back in Russian Second League


According to website shaiba.kz, a club from Kazakhstan could participate in the VHL, Russia's second league, starting next season.

Since the 2010 season, a total of three clubs - Saryarka Karaganda, HC Torpedo Ust Kamenogorsk and Nomad Astana, have played in the Russian championship, which Saryarka won twice, in 2013-14 and 2018-19, while Torpedo lost the finals in 2016-17. VHL in the past hosted also clubs from China, Belarus and Uzbekistan

All the Kazakh clubs left the VHL after the 2019-2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and re-entered the Kazakhstan League where they play to this day.

According to the source, the new Kazakh VHL club is being created from scratch and will be based in Almaty, where currently there is a team  - HK Almaty - competing in Kazakh League but which will apparently have nothing to do with the new club, although it is not yet clear whether it will continue to exist
