Israel

Relatively new on the world stage – the men's national team has only been competing since 1992 – Israel has earned itself a respectable place in the international hockey community. Currently ranked 39th, it flirted with the IIHF first division at one point, which put it among the best teams in the world. Continued success is probable considering that the sport's popularity is growing in the country.
