The KHL regular season is in full swing.

With the Kontinental Hockey League regular season about a third of the way through, Alex Ovechkin and Dynamo Moscow are atop the Western Conference standings, while Traktor Chelyabinsk is first in the East. Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov plays for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, and that team is second in the West.

The Tampa Bay Lightning also have a player staying sharp in the KHL while the NHL labor dispute continues -- Victor Hedman is with Barys Astana, which is in fifth place in the East.
