IHLC last held 04 May 2018

France played in the first ever men’s international hockey game in 1905, losing the inaugural IHLC to Belgium, before becoming the second ever champion in 1906. While France was a competitive squad in the pre-war era,ย Les Bleus were largely dormantย during the Iron Curtain era of dominance, only coming back on to the championshipย stage in the early 1990’s. Since then, however, France has held the IHLC on a number occasions, and continue to qualify star players into the NHL and KHL.
