Up next - the United States of America!


Hockey has been played in the United States since the 19th century. 

It is one of the more popular sports played in the country, and they have the second most people registered in hockey in the world. Hockey is more popular in certain regions. However, there has been an increase in hockey registration around the country as the National Hockey League (NHL) expanded to the Sun Belt. They are home to 23 of the 31 NHL teams and one of the top producers of NHL players.

The United States is always a top contender in international play. They currently sit in fourth in the world according to International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) rankings. One of USA’s greatest ever sports moments happens to be “The Miracle on Ice”, when they beat the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics in the semi-final before going on to beat Finland in the final.
