The 2011–12 KHL season was the fourth season of the Kontinental Hockey League. The regular season originally began on 7 September 2011 with the Opening Cup game, but because of the 2011 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl air disaster, which killed all but one member of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team, the start of the season was postponed to 12 September 2011.[1] The tragedy forced Lokomotiv Yaroslavl to cancel their participation in the KHL season.[2] The regular season ended on 26 February 2012 and the following playoffs ended on 25 April.[3]

The Gagarin Cup was won by Dynamo Moscow, defeating Avangard Omsk in a seven-game final series. Dynamo Moscow is the first champion from the Western Conference of the KHL.

League changesEdit

Team changesEdit

Expansion to Slovakia

With the admission of Lev Poprad from Poprad, Slovakia the league expanded beyond the borders of the former Soviet Union.[4] This brought the number of teams to 24. However, following a plane crash that claimed the lives of the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl squad, Lokomotiv withdrew from the season, leaving only 23 teams as in the previous season.

Regular seasonEdit

The regular season was supposed to start on 7 September 2011 with the Opening Cup and end on 26 February 2012 with short breaks in November, December and February for international matches and for the all-star game.[5] However, after the Yaroslavl plane tragedy the schedule had to be modified: the start of the season was postponed to 12 September and the number of games for each team was reduced to 54 as a in the previous season, when also only 23 teams participated.[3]

Notable eventsEdit

Yaroslavl plane tragedyEdit

On 7 September 2011, the day of the season opening, a tragic airplane accident occurred in Yaroslavl in which the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team was killed. After the news broke in Ufa, where the Opening Cup game between Salavat Yulaev Ufa and Atlant Moscow Oblast was already underway, the match was abandoned.[1] Later, the KHL announced that the start of the season would be postponed to 12 September, and that pre-game ceremonies would be held to honour the Lokomotiv team, while arena entertainment would be cancelled.[6] On 10 September, at Lokomotiv's public memorial service team president Yuri Yakovlev announced that they would not participate in the 2011–12 KHL season.[7]

All-star gameEdit

The All-star weekend took place on 20–21 January 2012 in Riga, Latvia.[5] Team Fedorov defeated Team Ozoliņš with 15–11.
