after they totally dominated the group stage, Canada yesterday got quite a scare against Sweden...let's see if the Russians (who are stronger than SWE, on paper) can upset the North Americans...:mumble:

 

by the way, I'm always impressed by the skill level these yougsters already have at their age...:bowdown:

The new Slovak Extraliga season´s format has been announced.

 

aaand The new season will start in a style ! The opening game will be a match between the two arch-rivals of slovak ice hockey scene, HC Košice vs Slovan Bratislava :woohoo:

 

Slovan Bratislava decided to end their KHL participation and after loooooong 7 years will finally return and play the national championships in Slovakia. by this the new season will have 13 participating teams. 11 :SVK and 2 :HUN clubs

 

Every team will play 48 matches (4 against every opponent - 2 at home, 2 away), since the number of teams is odd (13) in every daymatch round one club will have a rest day.

 

 

After the first phase completed the teams will be divided into 2 groups. Upper Group of 1st-6th ranked and Lower Group 7th-12th Ranked clubs. For the last ranked 13th team the season will be over.

In their respective groups every team will play 2 more matches against each opponent of it´s group (1 home and 1 away).

 

And this will close the regular season. The teams of top 6 groups will be all qualified for the Play-Offs, while the remaining 2 spots will be battled in the Lower Group, the 7th and 8th will join them in the Play-Offs.

 

The good news for the 13th ranked team no one will be relegated, since from the season 2020/21 the league will expand to 14 clubs (This seasons 13 participants + the 2019/2020 2nd division winner)

 

 

Also the participation of our U20 National Team in the extraliga has been removed so already from this season the U20 NT will no longer participate in our national championship

 

 

here the 1st round schedule

 

Thursday 12. september:

HC Košice – HC Slovan Bratislava (R)      (RTVS2  Live)

Good start of preparation for my HC Košice winning today the first praparation match 5-4 over the Russian KHL participant Admiral Vladivostok with a hattrick from Marcel Haščák (3+1 today) and 2 goals from David Skokan. Way to go boys !

 

The team is led by new coach, the Czech born german legend Peter Draisaitl (yes, the father of the german super star Leon).

I think Admiral Vladivostok is going to be my new favourite ice hockey team, because that name just rules the world. Admiral Vladivostok at your service :bowdown:

Problems in :SWE Women´s hockey NT

 

The basically entire women´s Swedish top ice hockey players refused to join the national team's training camp due to lack of care and financial compensation from the national federation, after the team was relegated for the first time in nation´s history from top division last season.

They are also considering the boycott of the upcoming international tournament in Finland. A total of 43 players refused the invitation for the preparation camp before the friendly tournament with Russia, the Czech Republic, Japan and host Finland.

So the team wasn't good enough to stay in the top division, resulting in financial support being cut in some way, and now the team is angry? Isn't that, at the very least, partially their own fault for getting relegated? I mean, it's rough and I might miss something, but it sounds like they were the ones who didn't take their chances..

and that´s what I call a very successful start of preparations.

 

HC Košice won the whole tournament in Pardubice (the traditional Zbynek Kusý Memorial) after beating the local Czech team HC Dynamo Pardubice 5-3 in the Final.
