Phoenix is also not a «native» of the NHL. The club’s history begins in the WHA in 1972, when the team was called the Winnipeg Jets. In the winter of 1978/1979 Winnipeg twice hosted games against Dynamo Moscow, emerging as winners in both encounters – 6:4 and 6:3. With their 1979 move to the NHL the team kept their name, and up to 1991 they managed three more games with Soviet teams:
Winnipeg Jets - Dynamo Moscow – 0:7
Winnipeg Jets - CSKA – 4:1
Winnipeg Jets - CSKA – 4:6
The club has played no matches against Russian teams since moving to Phoenix.
