IHLC last held 13 May 2014

A surprising new force on the international hockey front, Italy stunned the hockey world by upsetting Franceย (and winning their first IHLC) at the 2014 World Championship, 90 years after theย Azzurriย established a hockey team, and 80 years after their first IHLC tilt versus Switzerland. While Italy has always been a competitor towards the bottom of the Championship group on the world stage, Italy is now emerging as a more serious threat after an embarrassing performance as host at the 2006 Olympics in Turin.
