After buying a stick and gloves on a middle-classish Chinese salary I will tell you that there is no way I could put a kid through hockey with all equipment, icetime, and travel costs)
The first Chinese-born and trained hockey player to make an NHL roster will likely be seen as a major success from the Chinese Hockey Federation's standpoint, even if that player was to play only 1 NHL game in his career.

20 years is doubtful in my opinion. They need probably at least 10 years to get their program to an Austria level. Plus it would take another 20 years for players to be NHL aged, and I imagine the first few players would only play a few games, and would probably go undrafted

considering iceland just beat them handily at the U20 division III level to win the tournament in New Zealand, Chinese hockey has taken nothing but a huge step back the past 10 years or so. I dont think we will ever see a Chinese born and trained in the NHL. atleast not in my lifetime


Iceland - China 5:1 (2:1, 1:0, 2:0)
0:1 - 02.39 Hang Li (Zhu, Zheng)
1:1 - 06.06 Ingthor Arnason (Eliasson, Ingason)
2:1 - 14.58 Steindor Ingason (Bergmann, Omarsson) PP1
3:1 - 28.06 Bjorn Sigurdarson (Eliasson, Leifsson) PP2
4:1 - 55.59 Arnar Ingason (Leifsson, Olafsson)
5:1 - 56.22 Olafur Bjornsson (Eliasson, Reynisson) PP1
PIM: 5x2 - 8x2+1x10+1x5x20 SOG: 53-14 Att: 212
Goalkeepers: Snorri Sigurbergsson 13/14 - Shengrong Xia 48/53

if the SOG isnt an indication of the domination. not sure what is.

A real Chinese from China? Probably never. Hockey has zero presence in Asia, I mean zero.
Even more than all those indian languages I have to listen to all the time?

Canada is now an INIDAN country

The Chinese have no interest in hockey whatsoever (the exceptions are inconsequential).

This is applicable to the Chinese in North America as well. I've met enough Chinese to realize the interest in hockey mostly extends to gambling (i.e. playing Pro-Line).

Any genuine interest in pro sports is mostly basketball and soccer.

Jim Paek and Richard Park are both Korean Canadian and Korean American respectively. Both were born in Korea but moved to North America when they were 1 and 2 yrs old. I doubt you will see Chinese trained player in NHL next 20-30 yrs. Hockey is like handball in North America, no one cares or has no knowledge. Chinese hockey has gone down to the hill last 20 yrs. Asian Hockey League (1 team in China, 2 teams in Korea and 4 teams in Japan) has existed since 2000, and Chinese team never won the single game in 36 games this year, check www.alhockey.com.

Wow, China has fallen!

I agree if any Chinese make it to the NHL it will have to be Chinese Canucks!

I see almost no Chinese people at Canucks games. Lots of Indians.

The demos are completely different inside and outside the rink.

What about an Indian hockey player then? Possible?

I know there is at least one in the minors in Michigan.

IDK, I see a big influence of Indians (India) and Asians all in the junior leagues in BC, especially in the BCHL.

We probably won't be seeing any players from China, but maybe Chinese-Canadians.

IMO now that India has turned into a superpower, we might be seeing a growth in hockey interest like we're seeing in the middle east to go alongside the heavy population of Indians at hockey games.

India will likely get within Olympic-qualifier range before China will... but China might put their hockey act together if they somehow won a Winter olympic bid.

Winter sports in China in general is on the rise but hockey might be the only one that has not improved in the last 2-3 years. Its a really expensive sport for a normal chinese so unless the average salary goes up don't expect chinese hockey to get better.

the only hockey program that china seems to pump any money into is the womens national team, and that team wont even qualify for the olympics anymore.
