In May 2017 in Harbin Ice Hockey Federation of Russia, Chinese Ice Hockey Association and government of Heilongjiang signed an agreement on the accession of a new club in Supreme Hockey Leaque. In the Russian Ice Hockey Federation’s announcement of KRS Heilongjiang joining the VHL, it was reported that 15 Chinese players were at the event announcing the team and those players would make up the core of the KRS Heilongjiang roster. Later they were replaced by Russian and Canadian players who played for various clubs of the KHL and VHL. The team held their first match in August 2017 against Khimik Voskresensk and lost 0:6. KRS Heilongjiang played their first game in VHL season on September 10th 2017 in Jilin City against Tsen Tou and lost 4:5. The first goal in franchise history was scored by Mikhail Mokin. The first home game in Harbin was played on September 14th 2017. That game brought the team the first win in championship. Buran was beaten 4:2. The team ended the 2017/18 season in 24th place, with only 17 of the 52 games in the season being won.

Before the 2018–19 season , the club was relocated from Harbin to Beijing to facilitate player transfers between the KHL team and the second division team. A cooperation was concluded with the sports department ( AZ Sports ) of the packaging company ORG Packaging, whose ice rink Ao Zhong Ice Sports Center has been using the team since then.[1] In addition, the team was KRS-ORG Beijing renamed.[2]
