Two years ago, a Spanish U18 team led by Adrian Betran, Juan Munoz, and Alejandro Pedraz defeated the soon-to-be-promoted Hungarian team 4-3. I remember thinking at that time that we willl be hearing more about these young players from Spain in the near future.

Two years later, as 19 year olds, these three players led the Spanish Mens’ team to promotion to Division 1. Besides these three players, 5 other players on the team were under the age of 20 and another half-dozen were in their early 20’s. This team is young and I think will only get better. I think within a few years – if not sooner – the Spanish Mens’ team will be a competitive regular member in Division 1.
