The Georgian Ice Hockey League was started in 2007.Shortly after being accepted into the IIHF both Davidov and Tsagareishvili, along with four others (including the president of the Ice Hockey Federation of Armenia) were killed in a car accident, forcing the Georgian Ice Hockey Federation to delay plans to start a national team.
