Jamaica’s U-20 Ice Hockey Team Triumphs in Canada
On Sunday (May 14) Jamaica’s under-20 ice hockey team was victorious in Canada when they defeated the young Nova Scotia all-stars 5-1 in Dartmouth.
Fun Fact: On 18 May 2012, Jamaica became the first Caribbean nation to join the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF).
The team that was victorious on Sunday is comprised of players who all share Jamaican heritage.
Many of them currently play in the Ontario hockey league (OHL).
Jamaica’s ice hockey team currently has high hopes of competing in the Olympic Winter Games, but in order to be eligible, they must have full inclusion from the IIHF, which requires the nation to have at least one ice rink and a development program.
Jamaica currently does not possess an ice rink.
The team’s head coach is Graeme Townshend – the first Jamaican-born national hockey league player.
