Hockey Club Barys (Kazakh: «Барыс» хоккей клубы), commonly referred to as Barys Astana[1][2][3] or simply Barys,[4] is a professional ice hockey team based in Astana, Kazakhstan. It is one of the founding members of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). They play in the league's Chernyshev Division of the Eastern Conference. Their home arena is the Kazakhstan Sports Palace, where they have played since 2001. The head coach is Yerlan Sagymbayev and the president is Alexander Koreshkov.

The club was founded in 1999 as a member of the Kazakhstan Hockey Championship. In its 10 seasons of national competition, Barys won its two Championships in 2007–08 and 2008–09. In 2004, Barys was admitted into the Russian ice hockey system, joining its third tier the Pervaya Liga. Their win in its Ural-Western Siberia Zone in 2007, led to promotion to the Vysshaya Liga. After a single season of play in the Vysshaya Liga, Barys joined the newly formed Kontinental Hockey League in 2008. In 2013, Barys joined the Astana Presidential Sports Club, a coalition of sports clubs supported by the Sovereign Wealth Fund Samruk-Kazyna.[5] However, the Kazakhstan Temir Zholy, remains main sponsor of the club. Including most of the top Kazakh players, the club serves as a base club for the Kazakhstan national ice hockey team.[6]

History[edit]

1999–2008: Early years[edit]

Barys was founded on 26 November 1999.[7] The team's name, Barys, is derived from the national symbol of Kazakhstan, translated as snow leopard.[8][9] The team's inaugural season was 1999–2000, where they played in the Kazakhstan Hockey Championship.[10] Barys would stay there until 2009.[10] During the 2003–04 season, Barys squaded by junior players to serve as a base club for the Kazakhstan national junior ice hockey team.[10] In 2004, Barys was admitted into the Russian ice hockey system. They made their debut in the Pervaya Liga; in parallel, Barys kept a second team in the Kazakhstan Hockey Championship.[10] Barys' debut in Russia was interesting, with the team doing fairly well.[10] They played three seasons in the Pervaya Liga, where they finished respectively 3rd, 2nd and 1st of the Ural-Western Siberia Zone where they played. With this first place in 2007, Barys was allowed into the Vysshaya Liga.[10]

Barys played a single season in the Vysshaya Liga, a good one, where they finished second out of 14 in the Eastern Сonference.[10] They reached the playoffs, where they began by sweeping HC Belgorod in three straight games in the first round, before falling to Khimik Voskresensk in four games. Barys however won the Kazakhstan Hockey Championship that year.[10] Barys' main team did not participate in the regular season of the league (however, its affiliate, Barys-2, did), but the league's format was so that the three best team of the league after the regular season would play the three best Kazakh teams (Barys' main team, Kazzinc-Torpedo and Kazakhmys Satpaev, all three were playing in the Vysshaya Liga) in the final round. Barys won the tournament, dethroning defending champions Kazzinc-Torpedo, en route to their first Kazakhstan Hockey Championship title.

2008–present: Kontinental Hockey League[edit]

In 2008, Barys applied to join the newly formed Kontinental Hockey League. The league's authorities allowed Barys in, making it the first Kazakh team into the new league. The team won its first game in the KHL on 3 September 2008, abroad, defeating Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk 2–1 in the shootouts.[11] They registered their first home game eleven days later by beating defending Russian champions Salavat Yulaev Ufa 3–2, this time again in shootout.[12] The team finished its first season with a 15th place overall in the league. Barys secured a spot in the playoffs on 26 February 2009, defeating 6-4 Vityaz Chekhov in the last day of the regular season.[13] In the first round of Gagarin Cup playoffs, Barys faced Ak Bars Kazan. Kazan swept Astana three games to nothing to advance to the second round. Kevin Dallman finished the season as the league's fifth best scorer with 28 goals and 30 assists (58 points) record; he also finished as the league's leader for shots on goal with 217.[14] Konstantin Glazachev finished 9th overall in the league in scoring with 52 points. Meanwhile, the team secured a second straight Kazakhstan Hockey Championship title.

The 2009–10 season saw Barys have a very similar season than the previous. Veteran Jozef Stümpel finished top scorer of the team, with 52 points, two better than Maxim Spiridonov, who was the best goal scorer of the team with 24. Fan favourite Kevin Dallman also was a major contributor, with 14 goals and 27 assists. Newcomer Jeff Glass did a fine job between the pipes, with 19 wins and a 2.87 goals against average, helping the team finish fourteenth overall of the KHL, a one place improvement from 2008–09. Barys was however once again swept in three games by Ak Bars Kazan in the first round of the playoffs.[15] Barys opened 2010–11 season with Andrei Khomutov as the new head coach.[16] However, the team's previous manager Andrei Shayanov remained in the team as an assistant coach. The team compiled a 20–21–4–9 regular season record with 77 points. As the 7th seed of the Eastern Conference, Barys faced Ak Bars Kazan in the first round of playoffs, again. Ak Bars won series without losing a game 4-0.

2011–present: BBD line era[edit]

Vladimir Krikunov coached Barys during the 2012–13 KHL season.

In the 2011 off-season, Barys announced the signing of Dustin Boyd and Nigel Dawes, who later formed BBD line along with Brandon Bochenski.[17] In the beginning of the 2011–12 season, Barys fired Andrei Khomutov after seven losses in eight games.[18] Andrei Shayanov replaced him and led the team to 6th place in the Eastern Conference. Barys fell in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals to the 3rd seeded Metallurg Magnitogorsk in seven games.[19]

During the 2012–13 NHL lockout, Barys strengthened by signing Ryan McDonagh, Victor Hedman and Nik Antropov. Vladimir Krikunov appointed as a new head coach. Barys finished the season with a 23–18–5–6 record for 85 points. In the first round of the 2013 Gagarin Cup playoffs, Barys defeated by Traktor Chelyabinsk 3-4 in series. After the season, Krikunov decided to leave the team, because he refused to coach the Kazakhstan national ice hockey team in parallel with Barys.

In the 2013 off-season, Barys appointed Ari-Pekka Selin as a new head coach.[20] On 4 July 2013, Barys officially joined to newly created Astana Presidential Sports Club, the organization supported by Sovereign Wealth Fund Samruk-Kazyna to combine the main sports teams in Astana.[5] Having resigned most of their free agents, the club wouldn't much change in the 2013 off-season, with the exception of losing UFAs Vadim Krasnoslobodtsev, Vitali Novopashin and Mikhail Grigoriev. On 19 June 2013, the team signed goalie Ari Ahonen for one year.[21] Barys strengthened defense, signing Mike Lundin, Maxim Semyonov and Evgeni Blokhin.[22][23] On 8 August 2013, unrestricted free agent Nik Antropov signed with the Barys a two-year deal.[24] In its season opening game on 8 September 2013, Barys defeated Severstal Cherepovets 10-1.[25] During the season, Barys signed a season long contracts with Cam Barker and Zach Hamill.[26][27] Barys's Brandon Bochenski and Talgat Zhailauov selected to play in the 2014 KHL All-Star Game, as the result of fans and journalists voting.[28] Barys finished as the 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference. Recording 26 wins, 18 losses, 6 overtime/shootout wins and 4 overtime/shootout losses, they finished with 94 points for the regular season. In the first round of the 2014 Gagarin Cup playoffs, Barys defeated Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg 4–0 in series to overcome the first round for the first time in its KHL history. Barys lost to Salavat Yulaev Ufa in Eastern Conference semifinals 2–4 in series.

On May 5, 2014, it was announced that former long-time Barys's captain Kevin Dallman signed a three-year contract. On 18 June 2014, the KHL reported that Andrei Nazarov would move from Donbass Donetsk to become the new head coach at Barys, replacing Ari-Pekka Selin who had been sacked as coach of the Kazakhstan national ice hockey team on 11 June.[29]

Arenas[edit]

The Kazakhstan Sports Palace had been home for Barys since 2001.

At the time Barys was formed, the Kazakhstan Sports Palace just began to build. The lack of hockey rinks in Astana, forced Barys to the temporary relocations.[30] During the first two seasons of existence, the team based at the arenas of Temirtau, Almaty and Oskemen.[30] The Kazakhstan Sports Palace was opened on 6 March 2001 by the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev with a game against Yesil Petropavlovsk.[30] It seats 4,070 in the hockey arena. In September 2011, league's authorities considered Kazakhstan Sports Palace the worst in the league.[31] The main reason was the regrettably little capacity. Later, the team's owner Kazakhstan Temir Zholy decided to build the new Barys Arena for 12,000 seats, whose opening planned to 2015–16 season.[32][33]

Team identity[edit]

Logo and jersey design[edit]

Barsik throws T-shirts to the fans during the game.

The team colours are navy, sky blue and white. The team logo is officially the head of a snow leopard, above the team name "Barys" wrote in arabic script style. The team's home jersey is mostly navy with sky blue and white trim, while the away jersey is white, with navy and sky blue trim. The current jersey was unveiled on 27 May 2013.[34] The design of the jerseys was presented by Reebok with adding an orange strip on the sleeves. The club's longtime kit supplier is Lutch sportswear company.

Mascot[edit]

The team mascot is Barsik, an anthropomorphic snow leopard. Barsik wears a Barys jersey with his name on the back, and the numbers "99". He keeps the crowd excited, signs autographs, participates in entertainment during the intermissions, skates across the ice, throws T-shirts, and runs throughout the aisles of the arena to high five fans. Prior to the Mascots Contest at the 2014 KHL All-Star Game, Barsik changed his skin feature to look more snowy, while previous was looked more leopard.[35]

Rivalry with Ak Bars Kazan[edit]

Barys's biggest rival in the Kontinental Hockey League is Ak Bars Kazan. Rivalry between the teams often refers as Cat Derby among fans and media.[36] Both teams have the same name meaning snow leopard. Barys is a Kazakh mountain snow leopard, the Ak Bars is the same leopard but the Tatar team emphasised “white” by adding “ak” in front, secondly the team logos resemble each other.[37] The teams played in the first playoff round of the first three KHL seasons, and Ak Bars defeated Barys every year without losing a game.
