The sixth Gazprom Neft Cup KHL Youth Ice Hockey Tournament was brought to a close in Omsk. The winners of this leading youth hockey competition were HC AK Bars, Kazan, with athletes from HC Neftekhimik, Nizhnekamsk, taking silver medals and young hockey players from capital-city club HC CSKA taking bronze.

The sixth international Gazprom Neft Cup KHL Youth Ice Hockey Tournament was held in Omsk from April 18–22, 2012, with 400 athletes from 16 teams taking part. Thanks to the strategic partnership between Gazprom Neft and the Kontinental Hockey League, the Gazprom Neft Cup is today the most significant international youth hockey tournament in Russia.

Gazprom Neft Cup matches received full coverage on the KHL-TV channel, including a live transmission of the final match of the tournament, held at the Omsk Arena on April 22, 2012.

In view of its status as an official KHL tournament, the Gazprom Neft cup was made by the same master craftsmen as the Gagarin Cup. As is traditional, the cup bears the name of the winning team, who retain it until the next tournament. The first game of the 2012 Gazprom Neft Cup was between the winning teams of the two preceding years — HC Avangard, Omsk and HC Traktor, Chelyabinsk.
