History of hockey in MalaysiaEdit

The Malaysia Ice Hockey Federation is the governing body of ice hockey in the country. Malaysia joined the IIHF on September 28, 2006.[1]

The first ice rink in Malaysia opened in October 1975 and hockey was soon played at the facility. A championship was arranged during the mid-1970s, but the league folded after a couple of years. The sport developed slowly from there.

The Malaysian Ice Hockey League has been contested under various names (MIHF League, Dexion League, Subang Jaya League, President's Cup League, etc.) since the 2001-02 season. All of the teams are based out of Kuala Lumpur.

The men's national team actually made its international debut way back in 1977, facing Singapore twice. They lost 5-1 and tied 3-3. Malaysia did not return to the international scene again until 2007, playing at the 2007 Asian Winter Games, recording a 7-3 victory over Hong Kong for their first-ever triumph.[2]

Malaysia also participated in the 2011 Asian Winter Games, finishing fifth in the Premier Division. They have taken part in the IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia since 2008. The best player on the team is Ban Kin Loke, who grew up and learned how to play hockey in Sweden.

The U18 national team participated at the 2012 IIHF U18 Challenge Cup of Asia. They finished in third place with a 2-2 record.
