OT: CSKA Merger
- Hi Hockhist people:
Here goes the latest news from Russia:
August 1, 2002
CSKA and HK CSKA? No more!
Finally, it happened. There will be only one CSKA in Russia. As of
August 1, 2002, the CSKA and HK CSKA merged into one club. Legendary
Russian coach, Viktor Tikhonov became CSKA President and Head
Coach. "What happened in 1996 was a BIG mistake," said Tikhonov at
the press conference when the announcement about the merger was made.
Just an update for those who remember the mighty Red Army Club from
the past :-)
