IHLC Team Profiles – Ukraine (Junior)

 UKRAINE (UKR) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team

Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, the Ukrainian junior squad saw some initial success in Division I, qualifying for the Top Division in 1995 and 1996, returning in 2000 and 2004. However, since 2005 Ukraine has been stuck in Division I, even dropping to Division II in 2012, looking to claw their way back to the Top Division.
