    Offical start will be on 20 october, but Viiking Sport needs some games before Continental Cup matches. So hopefully they will get some practice with league games.

    im amazed at how unprofessionnal this league is... They have everything to be a nice league and instead, there's nothing...
    I know there isn't much money at all, but ther'es a minimum they could do for free : a nice web portal for the whole world to access... More infos on teams etc...

    Sad...

    I'll try to gather some infos here and then this season...

    Well, sadly, it's not a surprise that they will start with delay... But I hope that none of the teams will withdrawn at the middle of the season, so there will be 20 game/team (for Viiking 26), wich is the biggest number in the last seasons( for a decade?).

    They are renovating Kohtla-Järve ice arena. That´s why the season starts with delay.
    But it´s sad that they don´t have proper webpage and info about teams are very hard to find. 6 teams are good news, hopefully all teams are competitive. Lot of games indeed if we compare to recent years. Maybe there is Estonian Cup games in spring also, but this is just an idea.

    Season started with a convincing 7-2 victory of Viiking over PSK Narva. Viiking roster seems really much better then others and im my opinion current champion is the main favourite.
    Everest Kohtla Jarve is a new team made by juniors that last season competed in U18 league where they finished last so I think story won't be so different in senior league

    Any reason why Everest is with in? In that roster they will lose all games badly, mostly twenty goals. Only hope that they will strenghten their roster later.

    Nice statistic for first league game can be found here: http://www.icehockey.ee/tulemused/pa...ame&game_id=74
    Lets hope they will continue this.
    But no idea why Everest plays. Can´t wait for the Panter roster. Hopefully they will come out with a decent team.

    1 HK Kalev-Välk Tartu 8 6 0 1 1 56:26 19
    2 Tallinn Viiking Sport 6 5 1 0 0 62:12 17
    3 Narva PSK 8 5 0 0 3 58:29 15
    4 HC Panter/Purikad 3 2 0 0 1 19:11 6
    5 HK Viru Sputnik Kohtla-Järve 8 2 0 0 6 44:56 6
    6 Everest Kohtla-Järve 9 0 0 0 9 19:127 0

    Panther started the league only at december because a in a fire of the ice hall their equipment was lost. Some 10 more game was scheduled but not played, I don't know, when this games will be played.
    As you can see, the league is very off-balanced. Everest is dead last without a point, Viru-Sputnik could winn only aggainst Everest, Panther scored the winns aggainst the last two teams. Kalev-Välk, Viiking and PSK are far avay from this three teams, and mostly they are playig close games aggainst each other. If not one of the top 3 teams playing aggainst an another, the result is mostly a 5-10 goal difference for the winner.
    Attendance was low, 100-200 spectator mostly.

    Well, I was not in Estonia either (the only estonian players I saw were their U20 team in Miskolc at the Div.II/A WC.)
    But as I know, Lounakeskus is still the "home" ice of Kalev-Välk :)

    Why they can't have second league for Everest and kind of teams? Nonsense.

    What I do not understand about Everest is that why they want to participiate in a senior league without senior players? Well, they want to build up a team, and wanted to send their boys to a stronger league but why dont they bought 4-5 good player from other teams? Now they have a U20 (U18?) roster, and only 2 and a half line (they played all game with 13-15 players). Why they did not stayed in the U20 league is a big question. In a league, where their team in each game executed with 10-15 goal they will not improve many. (Yesterday, Panther crushed them to 17:1)

    Second league is no exist in Estonia, but there is some - maybe three or four - amateur league, so there are more than enough teams for a second semi-professional league. But this amateur leagues are organized in a county or town to minimalize travel and other fees, so I do not think that a second league will be in Estonia in the close future.

    MDani, far as I know (I stand to be corrected here), but the top Estonian league is amateur, not professional nor semi-pro.

    Indeed it's semi-pro (or in some way, amateur), but somehowe have to call this leagues, which have not - or just very few - ties to the federation. (and they call themselves, as I know, amateurs)
    We also can call them county- or town leagues, it should be also correct.

    Regular season ended, final standing is here.


    RkClubGPWOTWOTLLGS:GAPTS
    1 Tallin Viiking Sport 19 17 2 0 0 211:3655
    2 Tartu Kalev-Välk 19 14 0 2 3 158:46 44
    3 Narva PSK 20 130 0 7146:7039
    4 HC Panter/Purikad 20 7 0 0 13 94:105 21
    5 HK Viru Sputnik Kohtla-Järve 2060 0 14 90:17218
    6 Everest Kohtla-Järve 20 0 0 0 20 39:309 0

    In the second half of the season, Viiking Sport was superior, not even lost a single point. They have excelent players, not just form Estonia, but belarussians with Extraliga-routine and russians from MHL. Tartu also have som foreigner player, russians and belarussians too (9 former Extraliga-player spend the season in Estonia, 6 in Viiking and 3 in Tartu), Panther had some low-levell finnish player, while Narva and the two teams from Kohtla-Järve use only estonians. Narve has the best players from the U20 national team, includin goalie Daniil Seppanen, who is 17 year old, but one of the best goalie of the league. Also some of Narva top scorers are quite young.

    Despite Viiking's superiority, league become a bit balanced. Everest managed to get more players, but it is just tightened some loses, not earned points. Panter managed to play close games and had some victory aggainst Kalev-Välk, while Viru-sputnik beaten Panther at least twice.

    And, wich is a good sign for the future, that despite many problems (Icehal-fire in Tallin in november, monetary problems) none of the teams leaved the league and all games were played (except the last Kalev-Viiking, because it does not make a difference, and don't wanted to push the play-offs to a later date). Some good foreigner come, so the level also incrased - even with the huge difference between the first and the last team. The middle is quiet together, respectably Panter and Viru Sputnik, and Kalev-Välk and Narva is on the same level, they always played close games.

    Playoffs semifinals were played with an odd formula: series consisted of two games, if the the series was tied after the second game, the winner was decided through an overtime after the 2nd game without shootout. That happened in game two between PSK Narva and Kalev Valk. Regular time finished 3-1 Narva, but a Titarenko goal at 66 min gave Kalev-Valk the qualification for the final, despite the official score of the game was a 3-2 victory for PSK.
    In the other pair Viiking smashed Purikad/Panter 10-1 and 13-2

    I really hate it when leagues use that format, I dont mind when leagues have only two matches, but play off aggregate.
