IHLC Team Profiles – Switzerland (Men’s)

m-switzerland-team
switzerland-11 SWITZERLAND (SUI) Men’s National Ice Hockey Team
59 wins, 19 reigns, 61 games with IHLC – ranked 7th
IHLC last held May 14, 2017

The Swiss squad has played for the IHLC since nearly the beginning, first contending in 1908 and winning their first IHLC title in 1934. However, like many western European teams following World War II, the Eisgenossen were forced out of championship play over more powerful Eastern European teams. However, in recent years the Swiss have made a resurgence, on the backs of more and more Swiss NHL players, to contend, holding the IHLC for long periods of time, like in 2013, where they finished a record second in the World Championships.
