Russian hockey league takes step forward

Since I’m a big hockey fan, I was really interested in a story this week about a new professional hockey league being launched out of Russia.

The Continental Hockey League hopes to rival the National Hockey League as the world’s premier professional hockey league. Initial plans are for up to 20 teams based in Russia with additional clubs located in foreign cities (most likely in Europe).

Russia’s energy giant Gazprom has made an initial investment of $6 million, with six other state-run (though still unidentified) companies said to be ready to make similar investments.
