The Lithuanian Ice Hockey Federation (Lithuanian: Lietuvos ledo ritulio federacija, LLRF) is the governing body that oversees ice hockey in Lithuania. Lithuania had first joined the International Ice Hockey Federation on February 19, 1938, but was annexed by the Soviet Union in 1940. The nation re-joined the IIHF on May 6, 1992, along with Estonia and Latvia.[1]
