The Kyrgyzstan national ice hockey team is the national ice hockey team of Kyrgyzstan. The team is controlled by the Ice Hockey Federation of the Kyrgyz Republic, an associate member of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF).[2] They have not competed in a World Championship or at the Olympic Games, but have played in the Challenge Cup of Asia, a regional tournament for lower-tier hockey nations in Asia held by the IIHF.

History[edit]

Kyrgyzstan played its first game in 1962 during the Winter Spartakiad which was held in Sverdlovsk, USSR in which they represented the Kirghiz Soviet Socialist Republic. Kyrgyzstan played seven games, winning both games against the Armenian SSR and losing five to the Ukrainian SSR, the Estonian SSR, the Latvian SSR, the Georgian SSR and the Lithuanian SSR respectively.[3] Kyrgyzstan returned to international play in 2011 where they competed in the Premier Division of the 2011 Asian Winter Games. In the first game of the tournament, Kyrgyzstan recorded their first ever win, defeating Thailand 15–4.[3] Kyrgyzstan went on to win the Premier Division after winning all six of their games and finishing on top of the table.[4]
