NHL hockey players are by far the best in the world but that doesn’t mean there isn’t great hockey being played outside of North America. The Russian professionals in the Kontinental Hockey League are extremely skilled and in many aspects more entertaining than even their NHL counterparts.
If you ever get sick and tired of boring and non-physical North American hockey, you should watch a KHL game or two. Who said Russians can’t hit?
Check out this video of some of the best plays form the KHL in the month of January. Included are hilights from the KHL All-Star game with some of the fanciest trick shots I’ve every seen. These guys make Corey Perry and Patrick Kane look like amateurs.
Which would you rather have watched the NHL or KHL All-Star game?
