๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ NETHERLANDS (NED) Men’s National Ice Hockey Team (1935-)

The Netherlands squad has been a rare sighting in the history of the International Hockey Lineal Championship, intermittently playing for the title since 1939. However, theย Oranjeย failed to truly compete in these games, losing all nine of their IHLC games by at least five goals. They have not competed for the IHLC since 1982, one year after their last competition in the top pool at the World Championship, and two years after their only Olympic appearance.
