Somewhat related to the topic, but the Kazakh team that just got promoted to the 2014 World Championships was nearly all ethnically Russian. Only one ethnic Kazakh player on the team. The IIHF wrote an article about the future of Kazakh hockey, saying that while some younger players are ethnic Kazakhs, its still a mainly Russian sport, even with Russians being a minority in the country.
