u mean real ice - hockey? I think there are hockey schools there, just not as popular as bandy...Bandy is awesome, one should watch it a few times to see how cool the sport is. Not tailored for a NA fan much - as it is no contact, but for a European fan and a soccer fan it's a pretty good alternative...Too bad it's not marketed much even in Russia.
