2020–21 KHL season
Season changes[edit source | edit]
With pre-season events returning to the schedule in August as a part of preparations to start the season, Jokerit, whose ability to stage games will be governed by Finland's restrictions in response to the coronavirus pandemic, announced that it expected to play before a reduced audience at the Hartwall Arena during the first month of the campaign.
Due to the on-going travel restrictions against the COVID-19 pandemic, Kunlun Red Star determined that they would be unable to play in Cadillac Arena situated in Beijing, China for this season. In August, the club signed a contract to play out of Mytishchi Arena, the second venue for the 2007 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships located on the outskirts of Moscow. It is widely believed that the promotion of ice hockey to potential followers in China before the 2022 Winter Olympics would be hampered as a result.
Teams[edit source | edit]
The 23 teams are split into four divisions: the Bobrov Division and the Tarasov Division as part of the Western Conference, with the Kharlamov Division and the Chernyshev Division as part of the Eastern Conference.
Following Admiral Vladivostok's hiatus from the league, and to alleviate any potential issues with teams transiting during the COVID-19 pandemic, several conference and divisional changes were announced.
League standings[edit source | edit]
Each team is scheduled to play 60 games: playing every other team home-and-away (44 games), 8–10 games against division rivals and 6–8 games against teams in the other division in their respective conference.
Points are awarded for each game, where two points were awarded for all victories, regardless of whether it is in regulation time, in overtime or after game-winning shots. One point will be awarded for losing in overtime or game-winning shots, and zero points for losing in regulation time. At the end of the regular season, the team that finished with the most points is crowned the Continental Cup winner.
