IHLC Team Profiles – China (Women’s)

🇨🇳 CHINA (CHN) Women’s National Ice Hockey Team

China has been a unique contender for the women’s IHLC, emerging as an unlikely threat at the 1992 World Championship – but more remarkable has been their ability to stay competitive in a nation not known for its hockey prowess. China nearly upset the dominant Canadian squad at the 1996 Pacific Rim Championship, narrowly losing 1-0. China has played the most games of any women’s team that has yet to win the IHLC, and will surely continue to compete to win their elusive first IHLC.
