    There was Ice Hockey European Championships.

    Also Izvestia Trophy had his popularity.

    What are others forgotten, formerly famous, tournaments?

    I remember the Izvestia. Also I can remember the European clubs playing the NHL teams in the early 90's.

    Yeah, Super Series where euro clubs played NHL teams.

    In the 70s and 80s it was heated but by the time I started watching hockey it was just exhibition.

    Izvestya Cup just changed the name after the sponsor. It's Channel One Cup now and is still part of the Euro Hockey Tour

    Not only Izvestia, but also several other papers had their own tournaments back in the day. The Soviet club edition carried the name of Sovetsky Sport, and Czechoslovakia had for a while the Pohár Rudého práva similar to Izvestia Trophy.
