Metallurg Novokuznetsk (Russian: Металлург Новокузнецк, English: Novokuznetsk Metallurg) is a professional ice hockey team from Siberia based in Novokuznetsk, Kemerovo Oblast, Russia. They are members of the Chernyshev Division in the Kontinental Hockey League.

History[edit]

The team was founded in 1949 in Novokuznetsk (then Stalinsk) to compete in lower divisions of the Soviet ice hockey championship. During the 60s Metallurg managed to advance to the elite group for several seasons, but did not establish itself as a major club until the 90s when the International Hockey League was formed.

During the first years of the post-Soviet era Novokuznetsk significantly improved its roster with players from the Ust-Kamenogorsk school. Led by Sergei Nikolaev during the late 90s - early 00s Metallurg became one of the top teams of the Russian Superleague. In 1999 Novokuznetsk hosted the first ever RSL All-Star game.

The team's downfall began in 2004 when its managerial staff moved to SKA Saint Petersburg signing the best players from Novokuznetsk. Despite that the team was able to rebuild itself and years later proved its place among the top Russian clubs joining the Kontinental Hockey League in 2008.
