The Ukrainian Hockey Championship (Ukrainian: Чемпіонат України з Хокею, Chempionat Ukrayiny z Khokeyu) is an annual ice hockey award and national title, bestowed to the ice hockey organization judged to have the best performing team in Ukraine, founded in 1992. Prior to the 2015-16 season, the league playing for the title took the name Ukrainian Hockey Extra League.[1]


Prior to the formation of the Professional Hockey League (PHL), the Ice Hockey Federation of Ukraine (FHU) administered and handed out the award, allowing both amateur and professional teams to compete in an annual regular season, then playoff for the title. On July 25, 2011, the FHU transferred the rights of the event to the PHL.[2]

In 2011–12, the championship was awarded in the PHL following a 4-team playoff at the end of the 41-game regular season. The finals were determined though a best-of-seven playoff.[3] Teams that miss the finals participate in a best-of-five playoff to determine final positioning. In addition to the title, winning team was given a cash prize by the league, US$1,000,000, shared by all of the players.[4] National finalists receive silver and bronze medals.[4]
