History

Khimik Voskresensk Logo 1957-1998

Atlant Moscow was founded on December 20th, 1953, then under the name Khimik (1953-2008) in Voskresensk. Khimik played its first game on December 27, 1953. Immediate success allowed Khimik to play in the Championship of the USSR. Leading the team was playing-coach Nikolai Epstein. In three short years, Khimik was graduated to the top league of the Soviet Union. 3 bronze medal results between 1965-1984 were followed in 1989 when the team achieved silver under prestigious head coach Vladimir Vasiliyev, a major accomplishment for a team from a small town. More impressive is how much successful homegrown talent as come out of the Khimik system, with names including future Stanley Cup winners such as Igor Larionov and Valeri Kamensky.

In the spring of 1998 the status of the team changed, representing not only the city of Voskresensk but also the entire Moscow Oblast. This event took place on their 45th anniversary. During the 2005-06 season, the team relocated within the Moscow Oblast, from Voskresensk to Mytishchi. Following this, the team changed its name to Atlant, prior to its inclusion in the Kontinental Hockey League. Their new team logo features a sheep dog.

It is important to note that following their move to Mytishchi, an expansion team was awarded to the city of Voskresensk to play out of the historic Podmoskovie Stadium. Though associated, these teams are not to be confused.
