Congratulations to the New Zealand Ice Blacks, who won silver after a 4-1 run through the IIHF Division IIB senior mens tournament in Auckland, losing only to eventual gold medalists China.
The NZ U18 Men have completed a tough tournament at Chinese Taipei over the past week, with a single overtime loss on their record, and will be relegated to Division IIIB for 2018.
A breakthrough might not be the best word to use to describe something when you’re talking about ice, but for an agreement that will now see the first ever International Ice Hockey Test matches played in Queenstown, during this year’s Audi quattro Winter Games NZ it seems pretty fitting.
Congratulations to the U18 Women who were undefeated at the 2017 Challenge Cup of Asia and who will be bringing home the gold.
