We present a summary of the main events in the world of hockey for August 2, 2023.

Rotenberg proposed to hold a match between the KHL and the NHL in Africa

At a press conference on the eve of the pre-season tournament in Sochi, SKA head coach Roman Rotenberg suggested holding a match between the KHL and NHL teams in Cape Town, the capital of the Republic of South Africa.

“At the club level, nothing prohibits the holding of international matches. Such competitions can be held in South Africa, in India. Why not hold matches between the KHL and the NHL in Cape Town, between the champions of the leagues? There are no obstacles, it’s just a matter of economics”, transmits the correspondent of Championat Elena Kuznetsova in the words of Rotenberg.

Recall that there were three matches between the KHL and NHL clubs. In 2008, Metallurg Magnitogorsk lost 3-4 to the New York Rangers in Bern in the Victoria Cup. The next two matches took place in 2010. Dynamo Riga lost 1:3 to Phoenix Coyotes at home, while SKA defeated Carolina Hurricanes 5:3 at home.

Vityaz explained the change of head coach after the best season in the club’s history in the KHL

Vityaz general manager Igor Varitsky explained why the club did not renew the contract with Vyacheslav Butsaev after last season, in which the team from the Moscow region lost 1-4 to Lokomotiv in the first round of the Gagarin Cup.

“Vyacheslav Gennadievich Butsaev’s contract expired after the end of the last season and was not extended. We just decided to go this route. From our side, an offer was made to Alexander Vasilievich Zavyalov. We were impressed with how he worked as an assistant. And the club’s management decided to give him the opportunity to prove himself as the head coach. We have chosen this path and we believe that it is the correct one. Time will tell if that will be the case.

We would like to see more fun and modern hockey. The entire team building process is based on this now. It’s no secret that we need spectacular, watchable hockey. Alexander Vasilyevich is an experienced coach who has worked with very good mentors for many years. He helped Peteris Skudra on Torpedo, worked with Zinetula Khaidyarovich Bilyaletdinov on Ak Bars. Therefore, he has a lot of experience and is already ripe to work as a head coach, ”Varitsky said in an exclusive interview with Sergey Emelyanov, the columnist for the Championship.

Roman Rotenberg confirms Prokhorkin’s departure from SKA

SKA head coach Roman Rotenberg at a press conference on the eve of the tournament in Sochi said that Nikolai Prokhorkin had left the army club.

“There is also a lineup change. We want to thank Nikolai Prokhorkin for all these years, we won the Gagarin Cup with him, he was at the Korean Olympics. Then we go without Nikolai, together with the agent and Nikolai, we are looking for the best options to continue his career, ”the championship correspondent Elena Kuznetsova broadcasts in the words of Rotenberg.

In 2017 Nikolai won the Gagarin Cup with SKA. He missed most of last season due to injury. In the 2022/2023 regular season, 29-year-old Prokhorkin has just three games and one assist with a +1 utility indicator. In the playoffs he has seven games in which the forward scored 4 (1 + 3) points. Also in the KHL, the Russian played for CSKA, Salavat Yulaev, Metallurg and Avangard.
