Khimik Voskrenensk (Russian: Химик Воскресенск, English: Voskresensk Chemists), also known as Moscow Hockey Club Khimik, is an ice hockey team based in Voskresensk, Moscow Oblast, Russia. The team plays its home games in the 4,500 seat Podmoskovie Sports Palace, which was previously known as the Khimik Sports Palace.

This team is not to be confused HC Atlant Moscow team which relocated and was replaced by in 2005. Because it was an expansion team, it was relegated to the Russian Supreme League prior to its success in the 2007-08 season and subsequent promotion to the KHL. It would last there for a year.

In July 2009 the team went bankrupt.[1] However later it was reported that the team would play in the Russian Major League in the 2009/10 season.[2] The team was not accepted into the 2010–11 season of the VHL and the league's management suggested that the team take a 1 year timeout.[3] The team management decided to participate in the MHL in the 2010–11 season under the name MHC Khimik.
