IHLC Team Profiles – Japan (Junior)

 JAPAN (JPN) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team

Japan, despite only qualifying for a single World Junior Championship in 1993, has the unique distinction of playing twice for the IHLC in the same tournament, despite being outscored 15-1. Japan has since bobbled between Division I and II, not regaining their success of the early 1990’s on the junior level.
