Hungary finished the tournament in third place with a 3-0 victory over Austria. Oliver Daoda was in net for the shutout. Mario Huber was not on the roster for the Austrians. HK Rus Moscow was the tournament winner.
Results from the other games involving Hungary:
Hungary - Austria: 1-2

Hungary - HK Rus Moscow: 1-2
Csanad Erdely led the tournament with 6 goals and tied for second in points with 8. Austria’s Lukas Vendis and Netherlands’ Cas Staps were tied with 9 points to lead the tournament in scoring.
BUDAPEST - Significant strides have been made in Hungarian men's ice hockey this decade, with the highlight so far being its senior national team playing in the top division of the IIHF World Championships in 2009. In order to try and raise the bar for next generations, the Hungarian federation are putting their hopes to the Molodezhnaya Khokkeinaya Liga (MHL).
Currently at number 19 in the men's world ranking, Hungary's senior national team will be hosting the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, Division I Group A in April next year. But with its U18 and U20 national teams competing at a lower level, a number of the country's prospects have been joining junior teams abroad to develop their skills. So when the opportunity arose to start up a MHL-team in Budapest, the Hungarian federation welcomed the initiative with open arms.
"We only had four covered ice rinks in 2002, and today we have 17, so our hockey is still very much on the developing side. For us, the MHL is a very special opportunity to step into the very highest level of junior hockey and we are very grateful for having been given this chance," said Zoltan Kovacs, General Secretary of the Hungarian Ice Hockey Federation.
"Patriot Budapest is a long term project for us, that needs more time to attract more spectators and media coverage. For next season we hope for an improvement with hopefully more Hungarian players," said Kovacs.
Hungary finishes 2nd to Japan in Division II Group A. I'd say a rather disappointing result, considering that in their game against Japan they were leading 2-1 after the 2nd and then lost 7-2 and they gave up the last 2 goals in regulation to the Netherlands in Regulation, so they had to win in OT, losing a point.
could've possibly went undefeated and got promoted to Div. I Group B...
Hungarian teenagers impress, lead women’s team to Division I
AUCKLAND – It was an emotional moment. The partisan crowd erupted and the players hugged themselves. Hungary had won the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship Division II Group A in New Zealand.
Hungary beat Italy 3-1 in the deciding game to claim the tournament win and get promoted to Division I Group B next year. It was the consequence of one of the fastest improving women’s hockey programs in the world that led the U18 women’s national team to sixth place worldwide recently before countries such as Russia, Germany or Switzerland.
The win was an important first step in Hungary’s bid to lift its standards and qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Thirteen members of the Hungarian squad are under the age of 18 and the entire team is under the age of 21. All are amateur players. One year ago Hungary made it to the top level of the U18 Women’s World Championship program and finished in sixth place overall this year
The final placings were:
1. Hungary 12 points
2. Italy 12
3. Australia 9
4. New Zealand 7
5. Poland 5
6. Slovenia 1
