The KHL will broadcast games in the United States during the NHL lockout.

The Russian-based league announced Tuesday that it plans to air five games on ESPN3 this month and indicated that future games are "still being finalized."

Wednesday's game between Dynamo Moscow and Ak Bars Kazan will be the first game televised.

According to a release, ESPN3 is in 73 million households.

The KHL has also scheduled two regular-season games at the newly opened Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., in January.
