    The league confirms the addition of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the league, they are expected to make an official announcement sometime in August. The league also changes up the format however, without English, I dont understand what they are doing, it sounds like the Top 6 will be making the play-offs but not too sure, however we do know that the Final is now a Best of 5.

    The regular season will kick off on 6.September with the Vice-Champions taking on China Dragon, while the new comers from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk head to Seoul to take on Daemyung Sangmu. The regaining Champions, Nippon will begin their season on the 13th when they welcome China Dragon to town.

    Ok, the English calendar has been published and now we can now for sure how the play-offs will work. The Top 5 clubs in the league will advance, clubs ranked 1-3 will advance to the Semi-finals, clubs 4-5 will start in the First Round, which will be played at a Best of 3. In the Semi-finals, the winner of the First Round will meet the top club in the league, while 2-3 play each other. Both the Semis and the Final will be at Best of 5.

    In the 25 July update to the schedule, nothing major has changed though I have taken note that Dragon have finally ditched the Shanghai-based experiment. While they will still play five games in Shanghai (3 of which are on the schedule in red, whatever that means) they'll play 12 games in Qiqihar and 4 in Harbin, in China's "Heartland of Hockey," Heilongjiang Province. If everything falls into place, I'll be catching one of those games in Harbin against Morskie Lvy Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

    Love seeing a new team in the league, and I love their name and logo! It would be even cooler if the lettering was in Cyrillic.

    The league has some interesting imports this season as well.

    Did Westlund play goal for China? Much closer score than expected.

    Looks like this China Dragon team might be able to put up a fight this season, and the new Russian addition bounces back against Daemyung.

    China Dragon, so far appear to be buoyed by their KHL goalie and Japanese import players. Let's see how they do further down the stretch. Lack of depth will be their undoing, I think. They'll win a few points here and there but aside from their imports their domestic players just aren't good enough to compete, and in the long run the top lines will tire out.

    Daemyung will probably see lots of situations like this in back-to-back games. This is a team that, according to the league's roster page, has only three lines. If there are any injuries it will make life extremely difficult for this team. I would have hoped that they could at least build a fourth line from university graduates (even if we're talking about guys who will never get a pro contract after their military service), at least to have some ability to deal with any injury problems.
    Good bounce back for Sakhalin though, can't wait to see how they perform as the season progresses.

    In their first game, Dragon played 10 Chinese and 8 foreigners, not including backup goalie Shigehito Kimoto. In the second game day, it was 9 Chinese for the 8 foreign players, again not including Kimoto. Once the inevitable injuries begin to take their toll, the team will slide together with the fatigue of constant playing time for the foreign guys.

    Even during the ALIH season, most of the Chinese players will also play in the Chinese league, adding further injury risk to their better nationals.

    Wait... there's a Chinese league? Since when? (I mean, aside from the one-week tournament in which Harbin, Qiqihar and Jiamusi annihilate everyone by 20+ goals, then Jiamusi loses by heavy double-digits before the usual Harbin-Qiqihar final)

    That one is the Chinese "Championship." Why that's different from the league, I don't know. Even the CIHA has almost zero information about it on their page other than the phases of play (breaks during the Asia League) in their rules & regs. I only discovered it when trying to figure out why they list Qiqihar/Harbin for the teams of their national team rosters. Players with Dragon still play with their national league team even if results aren't posted.

    ...which makes me wonder, with IIHF rules requiring online posting of national leagues, will this lack of online info force the removal of China and DPR Korea? ... an aside, but anyway.

    Back to the topic at hand: AL looks good so far... too bad Chinese hockey has deteriorated so far. I remember when the AL started, they were an elevator DivI/II national team, and the Chinese teams could at least keep games close some of the time against foreign opposition, and this without the aid of imports. Now it's a mess.

    We have our first suspension of the season, Nan Jiang of China Dragon will miss the 9 September game due to a game misconduct for roughing.

    The telling tale could be that recent article about the women's program, which gets more funding, lacking in any concept of off-ice training essentials. While other programs have invested in total player development systems. They also never send anybody to the IIHF camps in Vierumaki to learn...

    What happened with the "Finland Project" of the Korean federation. Do they send young players to Scandinavia yet?

    They did have players in Finland for a few seasons at least. I remember seeing a team with a number of S.Koreans on it. Somebody else will have more details though!

    I can't seem to find any in Finland this year however.

    Depends..... if their Chinese players can be productive, then yes. If they can't, then the team will not win with two lines of imports. Not in this league, not with the imports they have.

    But they look better, so it's a start. They might not win, but an OTL is likely.

    It beats his last season when he had to play in Croatian playoffs against Zagreb juniors in the Velesajam ice hall. I must admit, I'll never understand some of the Medveščak's moves. They had two very good goalies and they brought Westlund for whatever reason.
