Kris Versteeg opened his KHL account with two goals as Avangard inflicted a ninth successive loss on Sibir. In Moscow, SKA scored three goals in 203 seconds to send Dynamo to the foot of the Western Conference. There was better news for Dinamo Minsk: an Andrei Kostitsyn hat-trick secured a third win in four games. Lokomotiv edged Vityaz in the day’s other action.

After a home loss and a failure to score for the first time this season, it might seem strange to come away from Wednesday’s game with a sense of Red Star’s glass being half full. However, despite the final scoreline, the visit of last season’s runner-up CSKA offered more evidence that the team is moving in the right direction.

A final-period flourish saw Avtomobilist cruise past Sochi to make it eight wins from eight so far this season. Traktor, meanwhile, followed up Monday’s 0-8 loss in Finland with a 1-6 reverse at Spartak. Jokerit was among the goals again, beating Metallurg 5-3 in an entertaining game. The Far Eastern action saw CSKA ease past Red Star after tight wins for Dinamo Riga and Admiral.

Nail Yakupov scored twice as SKA overwhelmed Severstal in Cherepovets. Elsewhere, there was good news for two struggling teams: Dynamo Moscow and Dinamo Minsk got their second wins of the season, defeating Vityaz and Lokomotiv respectively. Ak Bars continues to alternate victories and defeats, winning at Torpedo today after Sunday’s stumble at Barys. The Kazakhs again went the distance but lost to Avangard in a shoot-out after clawing back a 0-3 deficit. And Sibir’s troubles go on – a 1-3 loss in Ufa makes it eight without a win this season.

A thrilling game against Slovan brought the best out of our guys. Resilience, determination, a never-say-die attitude … and ultimately a first home victory of the season thanks to Brandon Yip’s shoot-out winner. After Sunday’s disappointment against Dinamo Riga, this was the perfect response – a morale-boosting win barely 24 hours later.

It was time to go home. After a long road trip to start the season, Red Star finally got to play in front of its own fans in Shanghai. A crowd of almost 4,000 came along on Sunday for the visit of Dinamo Riga and they got a glimpse of the team that Jussi Tapola is building here. Although the result went against Kunlun, this was a resilient performance with plenty of attacking intent. However, the team was undone by an opponent ready to capitalize on any lapses in concentration – and by two of our former players.

One of the most important features of last season for our club was the establishment of a full system of teams feeding into the KHL roster. To assemble that organization in only our second season of competitive hockey was a tall order, but it will be an essential part of building a production line to ensure that talented players can be recruited and refined before playing their part in the senior team.
7 September 2018
September 7 is always a resonant date in the hockey calendar. On this day seven years ago, our sport suffered one of its most painful losses when a plane taking Lokomotiv Yaroslavl’s team to a game in Minsk crashed on take-off. None of the players or coaches survived.
5 September 2018
Red Star collected its first point of the season in a hard-fought game in Sochi – but Jussi Tapola was just moments away from celebrating his first KHL victory as our head coach.
3 September 2018
The opening game of the season, much like the first day back at school, brings a mixture of emotions. There’s excitement – new players, new coaching staff, the problems of last season left in the past. There’s optimism – all teams start equal, and everything is there to play for.
