The RIHF wish you a Happy New Year!
I wish you a Happy New Year! 2016 was a really interesting year for you. Earning medals, all of our teams achieved excellent results at international tournaments. At the World Cup, we reached the semi-final stage for the first time in ten years. All teams stick to the same system, this allows players to be ready for the high expectations that lay before them. Experienced RIHF specialists are able to gather detailed information covering all of our players, they open the national team doors to new faces. 2017 promises to be a fascinating year for us. We all believe that our junior national team can be successful, and after that competition, our under 18 women's national team will take part in their World Championship. In May, the same tournaments will be held for the main women's side and the under 17 team. Later on in May, the senior team will fight for victory at the main World Championship. I wish you all health, happiness and success in the new year! The Russian Ice Hockey Federation will do everything in order for ice hockey to make you happy!
