KHL’s Brooklyn games are official, as Russian league official trashes MSG

For some time now we have known that the KHL was planning to play a few games in Brooklyn at the new Barclays Center. But now we have the actual confirmation.

The KHL released their 2012-2013 calendar and slated two days in January for their overseas trip. KHL’s Vice President Vladimir Shalaev told Sovetsky Sport the two regular season games will be held on January 19 and 20. Dynamo Moscow and SKA St. Petersburg will be the teams representing the KHL.

For what it’s worth: The New York Islanders are home on Jan. 19 while the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils are on the road that weekend.

Speaking to the media this morning, Shalaev said, “The Barclays Center easily surpasses the New York Rangers’ home at Madison Square Garden as a hockey venue.”

He added “there’s nothing good about [MSG]. Anyone who’s been there understands that arena is no longer suited to modern hockey.”

We will certainly disagree with this statement.
