I have just read article of VHL director about idea of creating all star game among AHL and VHL. Another idea is to organise friendly games among AHL, ECHL on one side and VHL team on other. You know, VHL club will come to NA to play a few games with AHL, ECHL clubs and vice versa.
VHL is 2nd tier russian league (involving clubs from kazakhstan), its role is to develop players for KHL (like AHL does for NHL).
Any idea? Any news from american press? according to russian sources, meeting was held at the the beggining of May in USA.
In 1993-94, a team called the Russian Penguins played each IHL team. They won two games out of 13 and lost 2 more in OT. That was a month long road trip for those poor guys. Nikolai Khabibulin was the goalie, Sergei Brylin was also playing.
