On Monday, July 18, the Kontinental Hockey League published the calendar of the regular Championship-22/23. As previously announced, the Yaroslavl “Locomotive” will start the season on the road – on September 2 in Yekaterinburg with a match against the “Motorist”, a day later the “railroad workers” will meet in Chelyabinsk with the “Tractor”. Our team will play its first home game on the Day of Remembrance, September 7, hosting Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk on the Arena-2000 ice.

A total of 68 matches are scheduled for the regular season - 34 home and away matches. If we talk about the series, Lokomotiv will have 3 four-match away tours in the upcoming season, and the longest home series will last from December 8 to 26 (with a break for the First Channel Cup) and will include 5 fights. More often than others, Igor Nikitin´s team will play against CSKA, SKA and Severstal - 6 matches each (3 at home and 3 away). The most popular days of the week for home matches in Yaroslavl are Sunday and Monday - each of them has 6 games. Another interesting detail was calculated by KHL statistics specialists: on November 26, 2022, Lokomotiv striker Yegor Averin can become the 6th player to play 800 matches in the KHL. Yaroslavl this day will play at home with Sibir.
