The matches in Tula and St. Petersburg demonstrated the importance of the performance of the Russian team in the regions, the trend of holding the game in different cities of the country will continue. This was announced to journalists by the president of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation (FHR), Vladislav Tretyak.

The tournament ended on Sunday in St. Petersburg, which was attended by the Russian national and youth teams, as well as the Belarusian team. Previously, all three teams were suspended from participating in the world championships.

“The time from May 1 to May 8 was the time for the experiments,” Tretyak said. – For the first time, the Russian national team played home games in the regions in May. For the first time, they organized and held an international tournament in St. Petersburg. And, of course, the experiment was a success. I am very happy about this and congratulate everyone who cares about domestic hockey.”

According to the head of the FHR, “the geography of the home games of the Russian team will be expanded.”

On Sunday, in the final match of the tournament in St. Petersburg, the Russian team defeated the Belarusian team with a score of 3:2.

“I congratulate the hockey players of the Russian national team on their victory. The boys had three wins in three matches, they won the final, which was not easy. If a team recovers from a score of 0:2 and wins, that means that everything is in order with their character, and with skill, and with the ability to play creatively in attack, ”said the official.

Tretyak noted that there were many debutants in the Russian teams, who “already managed to feel like leaders.” According to him, the tournament has become useful for them, since “international hockey is different from the game we see in the KHL or MHL (Continental and Junior Hockey Leagues – RBC).”

“They have their own requirements, their own realities, their own tactical nuances,” the FHR president continued. – It is very important to give players the opportunity to feel this hockey, the requirements it makes. After all, many of the guys who jumped on the ice in the Stavok St. League Cup in St. Petersburg, will have to defend the country’s honor for years in various international competitions. They have it all in the future, they have it all ahead.

Before the tournament in St. Petersburg, the Russian team played two friendly matches in Tula with the Belarusian team and won 5:2 and 3:2 after extra time.
