We're nearing the end of the IceHL World Initiative Nations Bracket unveiling. Today we get a look at Group 7 — our last European group.
It's not a place we often associate with hockey, but Amsterdam could have a future entry in the IceHL World conference. All you have to do is vote for the Netherlands.
Germany has supplied a fair share of talent to the NHL over the years — Marco Sturm and Christian Ehrhoff to name a couple. Will it supply a new team to the IceHL this summer by way of Berlin or Munich?
There's no question the Czechs are among the better hockey playing nations of Europe. Just ask Jaromir Jagr or Patrik Elias. So naturally, Prague will be in consideration for an IceHL club.
In recent years, some talented Swiss players have shown their skills in the NHL. Maybe it's time they get an IceHL team as well? Imagine a franchise in Zurich or Geneva. It could happen.
Which nations and cities are your favorites from this group? Who are you hoping for in that final group tomorrow?
