Summary of Hungary's Performance in this year's WC Division 1B Tournament

Bill Meltzer's Across The Pond

Quote:
Hungary has been a member of the international hockey community for the better part of a century. But apart from a last-place performance at the 1964 Olympics, the last time the Magyars played in an elite-level competition was nearly 70 years ago, when Hungary played at the 1939 IIHF World Championships in Switzerland.

After World War II, as the number of countries with hockey programs expanded, secondary divisions were created for the lesser powers to compete and attempt to work their way up to playing the world’s top countries. Hungary never made it – until now....
