Hockey isn't even among most popular sports in Russia.

It's soccer... then basketball, figure skating, biatlon, skiing, hockey, volleyball, boxing, greco-roman wrestling, freestyle wrestling, judo, olympic weightlifting, powerlfting, athletics, swimming, synchronised swimming, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, tennis, fencing, cycling, etc. Hockey is just a one of them.

Russia is all around Olympic country.

In terms of 'TV popularity' hockey is clearly second behind football (soccer) with biathlon at third. In terms of 'practicing popularity' I don't think anything beats the 'school triad' of football (soccer), basketball and volleyball, just because it doesn't require anything special to play those.
