A Growing Hockey Nation
|Thursday, September 6, 2018|
Over the next few months, we're going to be posting country features on all of our attending countries for the 2020 CARHA Hockey World Cup in Richmond, British Columbia.
Up next - Ukraine!
Ukraine is a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) and currently sitting in 23rd in the world rankings. Ukraine made an appearance at the 2002 Olympic Games for hockey as well as numerous World Hockey Championships. The country has produced eight National Hockey League (NHL) players and with a population of 45 million people, Ukraine has endless potential to become a great hockey nation.
There is one team from the Ukraine joining us for the 2020 CARHA Hockey World Cup, the same loyal team that was with us in 2016!
