IHLC Team Profiles – Korea (Men’s)

southkorea-11 KOREA (KOR) Men’s National Ice Hockey Team

Korea landed on the radar of the IHLC in 2018, both being the hosts of the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang and qualifying for their first World Championship Top Division in history. While they narrowly missed two chances to play for their first IHLC, they will look to the 2018 Worlds to surprise the world with a few wins (and maybe even an IHLC title) to cap off their historic hockey year.
