I forgot, make a different country host each World Cup, like in soccer. Also do the same for the Champions League. Imagine, the 2015 IIHF Champions League hosted by Poland/Ukraine or the 2016 World Cup of Hockey hosted Germany. Make a spectacle and an event out of it, the crowds and the interest will follow. The problem now is these things are poorly organized and poorly marketed.

We def need to "soccerfy" the sport a bit, it wont hurt. Can even grow the game in new territories such as England, France, etc.

Some examples

2017 IIHF Champions League hosted by United States
2019 IIHF Champions League hosted by Sweden/Finland
2020 World Cup of Hockey hosted by Czech/Slovakia
2021 IIHF Champions League hosted by England
2023 IIHF Champions League hosted by Canada
Etc...
