The Chinese women's national ice hockey team (simplified Chinese: 中国国家女子冰球队; traditional Chinese: 中國國家女子冰球隊; pinyin: Zhōngguó Guójiā Nǚzǐ Bīngqiú Duì) represents China at the International Ice Hockey Federation's IIHF World Women's Championships. The women's national team is controlled by the Chinese Ice Hockey Association.

History[edit]

The Chinese women's national team is ranked 7th in the world. China reached their hey day of women's hockey in the mid-90s when it was common for them to finish in 4th place mostly thanks to the "Great Wall of China" goaltender, Guo Hong, who is now retired. China has 174 female players in 2011.[1]
