National Teams of Ice Hockey
Successful title defense! At this year’s Deutschland Cup in Landshut, the German national ice hockey team was able to successfully defend the title and win the traditional tournament for the tenth time.
The Deutschland Cup was held for the first time this year in the city of Landshut. In addition to the men’s tournament, a four-nation tournament for the women’s national teams was also held at the same time. While the German men secured the title with wins against Denmark (4:1) and Austria (5:3), the German women ended up in third place.
In the end, the German boys were able to defend their title despite a tie on points with the teams from Denmark and Slovakia. Because of the tie on points, a new table was calculated between the games of the three teams with the same points. Since the German team ended up having the better goal difference in this new table, national coach Harry Kreis’ boys won the tournament.
The Czech female hockey players are having a dream start to the season. At the tournament in Landshut, Germany, Czech women won all three games with a score of 17-2 and in addition to winning the cup in Germany, the women also won the summer tournament in Finland.
