The meteor that stunned Russia damaged an arena that hosts a KHL team.
Arena Traktor, the Chelyabinsk home to the Traktor hockey club, was heavily damaged during the bizarre occurrence and will need to be "inspected and assessed" before playoff games can be hosted there. The league’s website said walls to the arena were damaged.
Traktor wasn't scheduled to play a home game there until Feb. 21, but youth league matches have been postponed for this weekend. Traktor is slated to complete its regular season with a road trip to Magnitogorsk before hosting Gagarin Cup playoff games.
However, that may not happen if inspectors find the building can't be repaired in time.
