IHLC Team Profiles – Austria (Men’s)

m-austria-team
🇦🇹 AUSTRIA (AUT) Men’s National Ice Hockey Team
2 wins, 1 reign, 2 games with IHLC – ranked 19th
IHLC last held February 2, 1931

An early contender for the IHLC, the Austrian squad first played for the IHLC in 1928, and won its first title in a rain-soaked 1-0 upset over Canada in 1930, the Canadians’ first loss as a national team in nearly 18 years. While the team suffered as a result of the World War II delay, and the emergence of teams east of the Iron Curtain, the Eagles have found a resurgence in recent years, backed by a growing contingent of NHL players, to compete for the IHLC. Their last IHLC win may have been in 1931, but look for Austria to continue contending for years to come.
