Barry Beck Talks Hong Kong Hockey

from Hong Kong News,

While ice hockey is hugely popular in North America and Europe, only now, with the advent of indoor rinks, is it catching on in Hong Kong. And the arrival of former NHL star Barry Beck through the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme is sure to write a new page in local ice hockey history.

He believes Hong Kong could compete in the Winter Olympics by strengthening its youth hockey training scheme.

“[There are] many intelligent players. They can learn quickly, so we are able to compete well. We have to continue to work on our youth programme. We might be able to get into the Winter Olympics,” he said.
