9 wins, 2 reigns, 9 games with IHLC – ranked 7th
IHLC last held December 26, 2015

Switzerland entered the World Juniors stage at the second World Championship tournament in 1978, finishing last and ping-ponging between the Top Division and Pool B between 1978 and 1995, only twice managing to stay in the Top Division for more than a season. But they have consistently remained in the Top Division since 1996, only being relegated once since, and even winning Bronze in 1998. While they have struggled to stay in the Top Division in recent years, the quality of talent coming out of Switzerland shoudl help keep them in the Top Division for good in the future.
