One of the cool things that resulted in hosting the Winter Olympics was the creation of the professional ice hockey team in Sochi, which will immediately start participation in the upcoming KHL season.

The name of the club is “Sochi Leopards” or the HC “Sochi”. Currently there’s very little information about it. There’s an official website, which is offline at the time of writing, and official VKontakte group (Russia’s biggest social network) with very limited info, and KHL’s website has not been updated for the new season yet.

But the great news is that we have a team, the world-class stadium, and since I’m a hockey fan I’m pretty excited that my home town now has a pro hockey team.
