The KHL spoke about its interaction with the Ministry of Sports after gaining independence from the IIHF and FHR

The Kontinental Hockey League spoke about its interaction with the Russian Sports Ministry after gaining independence from the International Hockey Federation (IIHF) and the Russian Hockey Federation (RFH).

On Tuesday, a meeting was held between the KHL management and the league clubs on amendments to the federal law “On Physical Culture and Sports.” League President Alexei Morozov said that the KHL would remain in the Russian hockey system and interact directly with the Ministry of Sports, thereby gaining independence from the IIHF and the FHR. The KHL also proposed to the FHR to terminate the agreement on the transfer of rights to national championships.

— The League will ensure the recruitment of national teams: when the Russian national team is allowed to compete under the auspices of the IIHF, the clubs will release the best players to participate in the Olympic Games and World Championships. Independence will allow the league to focus primarily on its own goals and objectives, improving the product created for athletes and fans.

The KHL will submit applications to the Ministry of Sports for the inclusion of the KHL and MHL championships in a single calendar plan. The KHL and MHL championships will retain the status of official competitions. All regulatory documents relating to the awarding of titles to hockey players, the rules of the hockey game and others will be developed directly during the work of the KHL with the Ministry of Sports in accordance with the law.

The league will independently interact with the Russian Sports Ministry on the limits imposed on foreign players,” the statement said.
