from the Jerusalem Post,
The USA won the final of the weeklong Jewish World Ice Hockey Championship on Friday, defeating Israel by a slender 2-1 margin at the Canada Center in Metulla.
Earlier Friday, Canada swept to a 4-1 win over France in the third place playoff.
A few days ago, Bill Melzer at NHL.com took a look at this tournament…
People who are unfamiliar with Israeli hockey are often shocked to learn that the sport even exists in the Middle Eastern country, much less the fact that Israel is a year removed from its first appearance at the IIHF’s Division I level, one step below the elites. Generally, the Israeli senior national team plays at the Division II level, which is the international gateway between semi-pro and amateur caliber play.
