Russian President Vladimir Putin, wearing his red hockey jersey, sporting number 11, took to the rink at Sochi’s Bolshoy Ice Dome to play a Night Hockey League match last month alongside his teammates, Defence chief Sergey Shoigu, Olympic champions Vyacheslav Fetisov, Aleksey Kasatonov, Valery Kamensky, Pavel Bure and others.

The Tula Region’s governor, Aleksey Dyumin, played goalie.

Playing for the opponents – the Night Hockey League’s combined team – were the owner of the Volga Group, Gennady Timchenko, Norilsk Nickel CEO Vladimir Potanin and co-owner of SMP-Bank and member of its board of directors, Roman Rottenberg.

The Night Hockey League was founded at Putin’s initiative several years ago. Ice hockey devotees started gathering at sporting stadiums during their spare time, usually late in the evening, to play their favourite game just for pleasure.
