The Belarusian men's national ice hockey team is currently ranked 9th in the world by IIHF as of 2006. The team is controlled by the Belarus Ice Hockey Federation. Arguably, the greatest moment in Belarusian hockey history was the victory over Sweden in the Quarter-finals of the 2002 Winter Olympics, where the team ultimately finished fourth. Belarus has 2,850 players in their national pool (0.02% of the total population). On 2005 and 2006 World Cups their coach was Glen Hanlon, who brought the best-ever result in World Cups - 6th place in 2006. He was succeeded by Curt Fraser, who led the team in 2007 and 2008. Glen Hanlon returned to coach the team for 2009 World Cup in Switzerland.
