During the 2021-2022 KHL season, our new project, “Imports” gives our foreign players the chance to see different sides to life in our country. We’re looking to go beyond the stereotypical view of Russia, its history and culture.
The first edition of “Imports” sees Avangard’s Corban Knight try out as a Soviet engineer, take a stroll through Moscow’s boulevards and test his skills on the chessboard.
We’re not defined by our stereotypes and we like to take a broader view. Just like the players taking part in this project, we know there’s more to Russia than caviar and steam baths – like fantastic hockey that you can follow every day!
