KHL kicks off inaugural season with Jagr-Morozov match up
Wednesday’s games were highlighted by the marquee matchup of Jaromir Jagr’s Avangard Omsk vs. Alexei Morozov’s Ak Bars Kazan. Morozov helped his team edge Omsk with two third period powerplay goals in a 4-2 win. Now with a great deal of former NHL players and unsigned draft choices in the KHL, this will certainly be a league that people will keep an eye on. We’ll see if the Continental Hockey League can live up to the hype it has generated.
