The Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) and the Russian Ice Hockey Federation (RIHF) agreed on the structure for the 2022/2023 campaign.
The 15th KHL season will start on September 1 with the Opening Cup game between the reigning Gagarin Cup champions, CSKA Moscow, and the runner-up, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, in the Russian capital.
The KHL regular season will end on February 26, with the Gagarin Cup playoffs scheduled to be staged between March 1 and April 29.
Moreover, the regular season will have a break reserved for the Channel One Cup between December 12-18, while on December 10-11 the FONBET KHL All-Star Game will take place in Chelyabinsk.
It’s planned that the League’s teams will play 68 regular-season games, but this has to be approved by the KHL Commission.
Earlier the KHL Commission confirmed the new alignment for the season. The only change is Kunlun Red Star moving from the Eastern to the Western Conference, in the Tarasov Division.
