IHLC Team Profiles – Switzerland (Women’s)

w-switzerland-team
🇨🇭 SWITZERLAND (SUI) Women’s National Ice Hockey Team

While the Swiss team is considered by many to be the next emerging nation to break the “big four” of women’s hockey (Canada, USA, Sweden, Finland), the Eisgenossen have yet to win the IHLC after multiple attempts. However, the team has come a long way from their 10-0 drubbing in the first ever women’s international game in 1987, coming quite close at the 2014 Olympics, where they emerged a surprising Bronze medal winner, the first non-“big four” team to medal in Olympic women’s hockey.
