    Bulgaria Bulgarian hockey season 2008 - 2009

    Hi folks,

    I saw that you are having a discussion about Bulgaria hockey events for this season. Let me put some details and facts.


    1. National championship

    This year BIHF decided to start with only one division so called A group. There is going to be like 4 teams in it:

    1. CSKA
    2. Slavia
    3. Spartak
    4. Sofia Skating Club ( ex Academica ).

    The championship probably will start around 15th of October.
    Personally me - I left my old team "Ice Devils" and joined "Spartak" as a second goalie.


    2. Balkan hockey league

    This year we have the following teams:

    1. Dinamo (Sofia)
    2. Torpedo (Sofia)
    3. Ice Devils (Sofia - last year champions in division B of national championship)
    4. Etro ( Veliko Tarnovo)
    5. Iraklis (Greece)
    6. Aris (Greece)
    7. IceBerg (Sofia)

    The tournament started last weekend. Here are some game scores:

    1. Iceberg - Aris 3:3
    2. Iraklis - Torpedo 0:4
    3. Dinamo - Aris 5:5
    4. Ice Devils - Iraklis 3:3

    Next week I am going to publish the full schedule of all games from BaHL.


    I hope this was interesting for you guys.

    Echo, thanks for taking the time to post. Very interesting stuff.

    One question though - where is Levski Sofia?

    Unfortunately there is not going to be Levski team this season.

    Due to some finance problems the team split up.

    Some players went to play for Slavia, some in CSKA and some in Spartak.

    Since I don't know most of the players - I cannot give you that list.

    Levski split up in 3 teams - Slavia, CSKA and Spartak. That is all I can say for sure.

    2. CSKA
    3. Spartak
    4. Levski


    The opening of the tournament is at 4th Nov - Slavia will play against Spartak

    There are two rings - Slavia Ice Stadium and Winters Palace of sports.

    1. Slavia Staduim teams (amateur teams)

    1.1 Dinamo ( complete amateurs )
    1.2 Torpedo ( complete amateurs )

    2. Winter Palace of sports

    2.1 Ice Devils (Amateurs and ex-hockey players )
    2.2 Spartak (Ex-hockey players, currently playing and some amateurs)
    2.3 Red Star (Mainly kinds team + couple of ex players)

    Slavia all ready have one foreigner (American dude) playing for their man's team.

    Closer to Liulin is Slavia but Winters palace has better conditions. Wont give you a hint for team because I have very interesting point of view.

    sad news. i just saw it on reuters.

    Bulgarian international ice hockey player Kiril Vuzharov was stabbed to death in an attack outside a nightclub in Sofia early on Saturday, police said. One of Vuzharov's friends, who was celebrating his birthday, was also killed and another man seriously injured after a fight between two groups. Vuzharov, 21, had just broken into men's national team and was in goal during Bulgaria's 10-3 win over Mexico in the world championship second division last week.

    Yes, I read it also, very bad news. They also added such cases became pretty usual in bulgarian nightcubs and that police havn't enough resourses to prevent this. They said bulagrian students organised protest actions a couple of times.

    Hey guys!

    I'm an American goalie that will be in Sofia from this coming Saturday (5/16) through Saturday (5/23). I'd love to get together with other hockey players for a pint or two while I'm in town. I can be reached at kristianmn@gmail.com if anyone is interested in talking hockey over some beers!

    Bobo, as I heard, this the the final standing season 2007-08 and 2008-09 together. The first three rounds played on November 2008 should be the season 2007-08. So, I got the info, that this is the final standing for the 2008-09 season:

    Final Ranking


    Place Team Games W/OTW T OTL/L Goals + Goals - Points Goals +/-

    1. HC "Slavia" Sofia 9 8/1 0 0/1 123 18 16 105 +
    2. PHC "CSKA" EAD Sofia 9 6/0 0 0/3 60 40 12 20 +
    3. HC "Levski" Sofia 9 4/0 0 0/5 38 81 8 43 -
    4. HC "Spartak" Sofia 9 0/0 0 0/9 23 105 0 82 -
    Cheers, Franco
