About HC Minsk
The Belarus champions are looking forward to their debut at this level of European club hockey following their run to the national title in 2019. They have previously won bronze three times in the Euro Trophy – in 2015, 2016 and 2017 – and will look to carry those experiences with them into this new arena.
Minsk enter the competition following an upbeat summer for Belarussian hockey with the side winning the EuroHockey Championship II. The country’s wider international panel features nine Minsk players: Marina Navitskaya, Kristina Moreva, Krestina Popkova, Marina Nikitina, Evgeniya Filippovich, Karina Zhuk, Anastasia Sys, Natalia Shtin and Olga Kudermaeva
They are joined by Ukraine international Yevheniya Kernoz and they have managed to keep quite active over the recent year despite all the upheaval. They did, however, miss out on their Super Cup title at the hands of Victoriya Smolevichi,.
