The ice hockey club Dinamo Minsk have begun preparations for the new KHL season. The players and coaches have recently returned from vacation and gathered in the Belarus capital.

Already in the middle of last week The Bison hit the ice for the first time in the new season. Preparatory work of the team is gaining momentum with each passing day. Dinamo Minsk says the club have a lot of ambitious tasks for the season.

The team, who entered the playoffs last season, say they want to at least repeat this result.

There is another ground for hope: a good performance of the Belarusian national ice hockey team at the IIHF WM in the Czech Republic. Dinamo players make an inevitable part of the national team.

The team is now going to gain shape and each player, be it an experienced veteran or a youngster, wants a place in the Dinamo squad for the next season. Everyone is given a chance, said the Dinamo coach, Ljubomir Pokovic.

Dinamo will play a friendly against Minsk's Yunost at Chizhovka Arena on July 19. Then Dinamo head for the Czech Republic to continue preparation.

The season for Dinamo begins on August 25 with the encounter against Spartak.
