NBC recently bought what was formerly called WCSN to create Universal Sports.  The idea behind it was to showcase all the Olympic athletes we love so much in the years when no one cares about them.  But they’ve expanded programming a little bit, and currently air a weekly KHL broadcast.  They’re upping the ante though, for the KHL All-Star Game.

As many of you already know, the KHL game will not be any ordinary tilt.  It’ll be played outdoors at Red Square in Moscow.  The teams will be captained by Alexei Yashin and Jaromir Jagr.  This should make for some interesting hockey.  John Ahlers and Brent Severyn, both with the Anaheim Ducks, will call the action off monitors in LA.  Check out the entire press release after the jump.
