Barclays Center Will Host KHL Games, According to League President

Via Puck Daddy (and its translation of a Russian report), KHL President Alexander Medvedev says the Russian league will play games at Brooklyn’s currently-under-construction Barclays Center. It seems the idea has been mentioned before — a report on IIHF.com, written after this year's KHL All-Star Game, said that the league was considering playing exhibition or league games in Brooklyn — but in the new report, Medvedev says that the league has decided to play both a legends game and regular season games at the Barclays Center. (The location makes a lot of sense, considering the borough's sizable Russian population. And the building's primary tenant, of course, is owned by a Russian billionaire.) In the report, Medvedev says the NHL has promised they won't oppose KHL games in the Brooklyn arena, which will also play host to an Islanders-Devils pre-season game next season.
