IHLC Team Profiles – ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ Slovenia

๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ SLOVENIA (SLO) Menโ€™s National Ice Hockey Team (1992-)

A newcomer to the world stage, the Slovenian national team first competed for the IHLC in 2003 – however, it was not until a pair of major winsย at the 2014 Olympics that the Risiย grabbed the world’s attention, led by NHL star (and only Slovene NHLer) Anลพe Kopitar. Slovenia nearly won the IHLC only seven years after their first game, dropping a 3-2 shootout heartbreaker to Denmark to remain IHLC-less. Slovenia is beginning now to compete more regularly in the top pool of the World Championship, and look for them to break their IHLC winless streak very, very soon.
