The Kontinental Hockey League has announced the coaches for Team Ozolins and Team Fedorov, the teams of the League’s finest masters of hockey, who on the 21st of January 2012 will contest the fourth KHLAll-Star Game in Riga.
Sandis Ozolins’s team, featuring the best players in the Western conference, is to be coached by Dynamo Moscow head coach Oleg Znarok and SKA Saint Petersburg boss Milos Riha. Sergei Fedorov’s team, comprising the stars of the Eastern Conference, will be under the guidance of Traktor’s Valery Belousov and Amur’s Hannu Jortikka.
