An emerging squad on the women’s hockey front, Russia first played competitive women’s hockey in 1994, and played for their first IHLC three years later. Russia has played spoiler at past Women’s World Championships by upsetting Finland for bronze in both 2001 and 2013, and emerged as a new top European challenger for the mainstays in the women’s IHLC history with their first (and so far only) IHLC title in 2009.
