2017 is the year on the Germans’ helmet. It will see the country host the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship – and the women’s team back in the top division.

After four out of five rounds the Germans won the 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship Division I Group A in Aalborg, Denmark, to earn a swift return to the top division. (Find the full article here.)

The Organizing Committee of the 2017 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship congratulates our brave women for being back in the top division and would like to thank the team for wearing the “2017”, the year of our upcoming men’s home IIHF World Championship so proudly.
