It's only amateur-level. But I have no idea how good the players are on 4th or 5th level of Swedish hockey so I really don't know how good Iceland hockey is compared to them.

Well that's pretty simple, they just wanted to avoid any real "bad guy" associations or politics (no real hockey nation wants to have their players pictured as enemies in a Hollywood, even more so, Disney movie) so they had to either make up a fake country or a better way was to find a real one which would seem believable (you can't plant a dominant hockey team in Peru). That leaves very few options and Iceland as a Nordic European country fitted the bill perfectly.
