played as WEST GERMANY (FRG), 1990

First competing as West Germany at the inaugural World Championship in 1990, the German women’s team has so far been unable to capture the IHLC in nine attempts – however, they are continuing to improve, competing for the IHLC as recently as 2009, and finishing as good as fifth in both their latest World Championship (2013) and Olympic Games (2006).

IHLC Team Profiles – Germany (Junior)


🇩🇪 GERMANY (GER) Men’s Junior National Ice Hockey Team
played as WEST GERMANY (FRG), 1976-90

23 wins, 13 reigns, 24 games with IHLC – ranked 10th
IHLC last held 14 April 2018

Germany’s national hockey team, much like the country in the 20th century, has had a wild share of ups and downs – first winning the IHLC in 1909, the team suffered during years during and between both World Wars, and the division of Germany left the team’s successor, West Germany, weakened and less of a threat. While the West did manage to capture the IHLC on a few occasions, it was not until reunification that Träger der Adler has regained its footing again, with a smattering NHL stars helping Germany to win the IHLC in the modern era.
