IHLC Team Profiles – Norway (Junior)


 NORWAY (NOR) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team

Norway first joined the World Juniors scene in 1979, ping-ponging between the Top Division and lower pools in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Norway remained in the lower divisions until promotion in 2005, where they have since returned again in 2010 and 2013, but have struggled in recent years to maintain any momentum in the Top Division.
