m-denmark-team
🇩🇰 DENMARK (DEN) Men’s National Ice Hockey Team
4 wins, 3 reigns, 4 games with IHLC – ranked 14th
IHLC last held April 28, 2017

Despite holding the dubious record of one of the largest defeats in hockey, a 47-0 drubbing from Canada at the 1949 World Championship, the Danes emerged on the championship stage in 2003, entering the Top Division, where they have remained ever since. The Lions won their first IHLC in 2010, repeating again as champions in 2014 and 2017. With a growing contingent of NHLers now putting on the jersey, Denmark will surely be a major competitor in the future.
