IHLC Team Profiles – Denmark (Junior)


 DENMARK (DEN) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team

After decades of futility in the lower rungs of the World Junior Championship tournament, Denmark finally broke through to the Top Division in 2008, and despite some setbacks, returned in 2015 and have since eked out a permanent spot, even finishing a surprising fifth in 2017. Look for the Lions to not only stay for good, but to make some larger splashes in the years to come.
