Hockey Club Salavat Yulaev (Russian: Хоккейный клуб «Салават Юлаев», Bashkir: «Салауат Юлаев» хоккей клубы), commonly referred as Salavat Yulaev Ufa, is a professional ice hockey team based in Ufa in the Republic of Bashkortostan, a federal subject of the Russian Federation. They are members of the Chernyshev Division of the Kontinental Hockey League.

History[edit]

The club is named after Salavat Yulaev, a national hero of Bashkortostan. After years of competing in the low-level divisions the team was invited to the second level of the Soviet League "Class A" in 1964 subsequently getting promotion to the elite group for the 1978-1979, 1980-81, 1982-83, 1985-1986 and 1986-1987 seasons. But it wasn't until the rise of pro hockey in post-Soviet Russia that Salavat became a recognizable major club.

Salavat Yulaev was one of the founding clubs of the International Hockey League and later the Russian Superleague normally advancing to playoff stages since the first seasons. The club reached its first Russian championship semifinals in 1996-97 and eventually won its first Champion title in 2007-08 beating Lokomotiv Yaroslavl by three matches to two.

Salavat Yulaev Ufa has played in 77 international games against clubs from Bulgaria, Denmark, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Finland, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Switzerland, Sweden (with a record of 67 victories, 5 ties and 5 defeats)[citation needed]. Its first international game was played on December 30, 1961 in Ufa with Wismuth (GDR).

Recent History[edit]

On July 11, 2008, Salavat signed NHL rising star Alexander Radulov. On June 9, 2009, a press release was issued, stating that Viktor Kozlov had signed a three-year contract to return to Russia.[1] The club has also signed Norwegian forward Patrick Thoresen for 2009–10 and 2010–11 seasons.

Salavat Yulaev marked its first years in the KHL by winning first two regular seasons and becoming the first club to be awarded with the Continental Cup. Next season the team advanced to the final with Atlant winning their first Gagarin Cup.
