IHLC Team Profiles – Switzerland (Junior)


🇨🇭 SWITZERLAND (SUI) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team
10 wins, 3 reigns, 10 games with IHLC – ranked 7th
IHLC last held January 4, 2019

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 had their struggles in recent years, the quality of talent coming out of Switzerland should help keep them in the Top Division for good in the future.
