Hockey Club Admiral

Hockey Club Admiral (Russian: Хоккейный клуб Адмирал), commonly referred to as the Admiral Vladivostok, is a professional ice hockey team based in Vladivostok, Primorsky Krai, Russia. They are members of the Chernyshev Division of the Eastern Conference of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Admiral play their home games at Fetisov Arena, which has a capacity of 7,500.

Admiral joined the league in 2013 as an expansion team, which made them one of only two teams in the Russian Far East.[1]


At the request of the governor of Primorsky Krai, Vladimir Miklushevsky, the creation of the club was honored upon a member of the Federation Council of the Territory, Vyacheslav Fetisov. On 21 April 2013, it was decided that Admirals would join the Kontinental Hockey League in the 2013–14 season. [3] At a meeting with the editors of the coastal media in December 2013, Vladimir Miklushevsky said that the idea of a club was born on the birthday of Vyacheslav Fetisov, 20 April 2013.

Admiral's name and logo were determined by the public. Selected names of Admiral, Orca and "Outpost" were offered in which Admiral won with 72.2% of the vote.[2] Located in the Maritime Province, its logo features a blue anchor supported by Cyrillic white letter 'Admiral'.

On 17 June 2013, for the formation of the club the KHL held its first ever League expansion draft. The Seaside club had the right to choose one of five skaters submitted by each club KHL, except foreign and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, who were rebuilding from the 2011 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl air disaster. Under the terms of the draft, Admiral were allowed to select up to 7 foreign players, including no more than one Goaltender. Admiral would initially select 19 players, including a goalkeeper.[3]

On 27 July 2013, Rubin Tyumen and Admiral signed a co-operation affiliation agreement, between the KHL and the secondary tier VHL. On 1 August 2013, a vote on uniforms of the team was completed: the number 1 option won out with the public, a dark blue uniform decorated with the image of an anchor.[4]

On 6 September 2013, Admiral Vladivostok played their first match in the KHL championship against provincial rivals Amur Khabarovsk. The first goal scored in the club's history was scored by Swedish forward Nicklas Bergfors, and the match ended in Admiral's first shootout victory with a score of 4-3. On 2 December 2013 Vladivostok fired its inaugural coach Hannu Jortikka due to a conflict with club management. Three days later Admiral announced that Sergei Svetlov, Olympic champion in 1988 in the composition of the USSR national hockey team, would assume the head coaching responsibilities.

On 7 January 2014, in a match with Severstal Cherepovets, Justin Hodgman scored the 100th goal in the club's history. In a fourth-place finish in the Chernyshev division, Admiral made the playoffs in their first season, losing in the first round for the Gagarin Cup 2-4 to Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

In the off-season, on 21 May 2014, it was announced that Dusan Gregor would become the third coach in club history.[5]
