IHLC Team Profiles – ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Japan (Junior)


๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต JAPAN (JPN) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team (1982-)

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.
