Switzerland is at the 8th spot on the ''number of registered players by country''-list and I believe they've both a Top3 european hockey league and a Top7 national team. If hockey doesn't get suddenly more popular, there's no reason why this would change (in other words, they won't close the gap to Top5 countries).

Canada - 617,107
United States - 511,178
Czech Republic - 95,094
Sweden - 69,921
Russia - 64,326
Finland - 56,626
Germany - 27,068
Switzerland - 26,166
