Women's Hockey in Russia

International Hockey

If anyone has information about the league structure of women's hockey in Russia, please let me know. Russia was not active in international women's hockey until just 1994. They started their national team at the beginning of January 1994 in St. Petersburg. For more information about women's hockey in Russia, be sure to see Barbara Pickering's overview of Russian Women's Hockey.

Here is a link that provides the results of all games played by the Russian Women's National team.

During the 93-94 and 94-95 seasons, their national team toured North America to gain experience. In 1995, they competed in the European B Championship for the first time, and won the gold medal! This means that they are promoted to the European A Championship for 1996. The 1996 European A Championship was held in Russia.

I have two very short information files on the Russian national team, from 1994 and 1995, respectively.
