The third in our series of quick looks at the KHL’s newcomers for 2014-15!

Duelling Torpedos!  Pictures from the late 1980s of Torpedo (now Lokomotiv) Yaroslavl taking on Torpedo Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod).  The top photo has Yaroslavl in white and Gorky in dark, while that is resversed in the bottom picture.  The only player I can indentify for certain is Mikhail Presnyakov, #6 in dark in the top photo.

A few looks at Sibir’s new logo and uniform for 2014-15.  More pictures here!
