According to IIHF, there are 572 411 registered hockey players in Canada and 977 573 registered hockey players in the rest of the world COMBINED(half of them in the US).

In comparison, according to FIFA there are about 13 million people playing soccer in Brazil... and 265 million in the world.

With all the culture/history, resources and infrastructure, Canada should easily dominate international hockey.
