Foreign Player Ban in Japan
Does anyone know when Japan lifted its ban on foreign players that was instituted in the mid-1980s or so? I believe that those of full or partial Japanese ancestry were allowed to play in the old Japan Ice Hockey League starting in the mid-1990s, but what about non-Japanese foreign players? Thanks.
