KHL Highlights: Kulemin scores 2, Komarov's big return, and more

Last week Leo Komarov was riding a bus with the AHL's Toronto Marlies. Now he's on a line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. Not bad.

The NHL keeps cancelling games, and the KHL keeps churning them out. I hope you like the videos we're putting out, and as always, I'd love your feedback.

Enjoy!

Leo Komarov traded in riding a bus in the AHL for playing on a line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on Dynamo Moscow. How anyone can blame him for leaving the Marlies is beyond me.

Nikolai Kulemin already has more KHL goals this year than goals with the Leafs last year. The Leafs need to trade for Malkin. #CONFIRMED

SKA St. Petersburg highlights always rule. They're like the KHL's Harlem Globetrotters.

Lev finally stops red-hot Lokomotiv.

Traktor and their awesome jerseys beat Yugra.

And as always, the Daily KHL Update.

Appreciate your effort men and enjoyed the videos as usual. Is there any chance you could put together some kind of video package of the OKC Barons? I know most of the video is of poor quality but it's still Oiler/Baron hockey. Maybe a fight package of the scraps so far this year from all the leagues?

I too would love to see a fight and hit package from all the leagues. That would be awesome.

Hopefully the fist overall pick starts to score some more after he gets over the jet lag.

It's VERY different from city to city. Some teams out-draw some NHL teams. Some get the attendance of a bad OHL team. The thing to remember here is the primary goal of many KHL teams isn't to make money. The KHL serves a different purpose in Russia. As for the newer teams further west for them (Lev Prague, Slovan, Dinamo Minsk, Dinamo Riga) are very popular and have great attendance. Latvian hockey fans are so big actually that almost as many of them have watched the Yakupov feature we did as Canadians and Russians are a distant third.

Latvia kicks so much ass. Those guys love hockey to death. Big props to Latvian fans, watching them trek to hockey tournies across the world is a great pleasure.
