Men’s ice hockey side advances a division

ICE HOCKEY

The Korean men’s under-18 ice hockey team has advanced to Division I Group B after winning all the games in the Division II Group A of the International Ice Hockey (IIHF) U-18 World Championship.

Korea, led by Canadian coach Spiros Anastas, beat Poland 4-1 in its final game at the Worlds, which were held at Tondiraba Ice Hall in Estonia. With the victory, Korea ranked top in Group A of the second division and has been promoted to Group B of the first division for next year.

This is first time in three years that the men’s U-18 team is moving to Division I. In 2013, Korea suffered five losses in Division I and was demoted to Division II Group A. Last year, it finished second in the group.

In Division II Group A, Korea was in the same group with Croatia, Estonia, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Poland. It scored 28 goals and allowed only seven throughout its five games.
