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.
