IHLC Team Profiles – ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡บ Hungary (Men’s)

๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡บ HUNGARY (HUN) Menโ€™s National Ice Hockey Team (1927-)
1ย win, 1ย reign, 1ย game with IHLC – ranked 21st
IHLC last held 30 March 2007

First playing for the IHLC in 1933, Hungary began to build momentum before the Cold War relegated the team back into relative obscurity, seemingly only playing as a punching bag for the more powerful likes of the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia to practice on. However, theย Maygars stunned the hockey world by taking the IHLC from Sweden in March 2007, before losing it the next day back toย Tre Kronor, leaving Hungary tied for the shortest total IHLC reign in history. However, Hungary continues to improve, and will surely look to improve on and increaseย their tinyย IHLC record.
