Championships

Every country where hockey is played has some kind of a national championship. In some cases, such as National Hockey League or Kontinental Hockey League, the championship is that of a league comprising more than one nation; in many other cases, it is a multi-level system, with one top league and one or several lower divisions between which a system of promotion and relegation exists.

Here are some of the strongest leagues worldwide:

International competitions

Major International competitions in ice hockey are sanctioned by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). This federation has 69 members and takes care of organizing the ice hockey events during the Olympic Games, the World Championships and several other competitions such as the European Champions Cup, the European Women's Champions Cup, the Continental Cup, the Champions Hockey League and the Victoria Cup. Its main aim is to help foster the development of the game worldwide; it also is the governing body of all the member nations' National Federations.

Several other major competitions are not ruled by the IIHF. Among them are the World Cup, the Canada Cup, the Deutschland Cup, the Spengler Cup and the Tournoi international de hockey pee-wee de Québec.

Junior hockey

The Ice Hockey Wiki, in its aim to cover as thoroughly hockey as possible, pays a special attention to junior, collegial and university hockey, an area where informations are often difficult to find on the internet. Our members have already gathered results and standings of hundreds of seasons of Canadian and American junior hockey leagues and keep doing so, making IHW one of the most complete reference in the domain. Here are some major categories linked to this aspect of IHW:

Metro64

This pair of newspaper photgraphs shows three players and a coach from the 1963-64 season of the Metropolitan Montreal Junior League. What is unusual of the pictures is that Rogatien Vachon and Scotty Bowman (above) and Craig Patrick and Larry Pleau (centered, below) all became General Managers in the National Hockey League. Also pictured are Frank J. Selke (left, below) and Sam Pollock (right, below), General Managers of the Montreal Canadiens.

Featured article

125px-Portage Terriers

The Portage Terriers are a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. They are members of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL), itself a part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) sanctioned by Hockey Canada.

Founded in 1967, the team was one of the founding members of the now defunct Central Manitoba Junior Hockey League, which merged after only one season of existance with the MJHL. They have been MJHL members ever since, and won 5 titles across the years (1973, 1990, 2005, 2008, 2009). 1973 turned out to be a special year for the team, which did not only win the Manitoba title, but also the Anavet Cup, the Abbott Cup and the Centennial Cup. The quadruple crowning earned the 1973 Portage Terriers to be inducted to the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame.

Did you know that...

... in unlikely Australia is the fifth oldest ice hockey trophy in existance? The Goodall Cup is indeed awarded since 1909 to the national senior men's ice hockey champion team of Australia. Traditionally the prize of an inter-state tournament, the Cup became the Australian Ice Hockey League's championship trophy since 2000.

New South Wales is the most crowned state, with 38 titles. Of the AIHL era, the Newcastle North Stars are the most frequent victor with 4 titles. The Goodall Cup celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2009.

About the project

The Ice Hockey Wiki (IHW) is a project created to cover ice hockey as thoroughly as possible. The wiki was founded on June 27th 2006 by DMighton and has, ever since its creation, kept growing at a steady pace. We encourage visitors to create an account and join us in our effort to build the most complete and accurate ice hockey encyclopedia ever.

You do not have to create 50 new articles every day to contribute. Heck, you don't even need to drop by every day either! There is no obligation here. You may want to begin by correcting little spelling mistakes our members may have made to begin with; you may as well correct a team roster, add a line or two about a particular event that occurred in the history of a particular team or league, add statistics for a player, create an article to "blue" a dead link... In the end, every little step counts, and every edit made makes IHW better.

This is a free project for everyone; therefore, everyone can contribute. We hope to have your help!

The community

The Ice Hockey Wiki community is a small but dedicated group of people who love ice hockey and are bound by a common goal: to build the most complete and accurate ice hockey encyclopedia ever written. We all have our very own Specialty.

If you have any question about the wiki itself or about editing, you should ask our three administrators: DMighton, founder of the IHW,Yannzgob or Fanofpucks.

We have a discussion page, the Locker Room. Don't hesitate to drop by the place and ask questions, propose things or join ongoing discussions!

Help to Get You Started

You decided to help us? Thank you! We are glad you stepped in. We realize there may be quite a few things confusing for people who are new to wiki editing, and several little technicalities you may not be aware of if you have not hanged around here for a long time, so we have some resources to assist you. We suggest you start by reading the Ice Hockey Wiki Guidelines. That's a good place to begin with, as our rules and policies are stated there. Don't worry, we don't have many, and they are very simple and instinctive.

If you are new to wiki editing, you should then read this help page about editing. You should also read the Manual of style. It is not a very long read, and it will tell you what you need to know about how to write a new article. If you want to practice using the editing interface, you should do it in the sandbox. We also have a small FAQ to assist you with some things.

IHW projects

The Ice Hockey Wiki is a pretty big wiki and is certainly not about to stop growing. Considering the fact that the world is a large place across which hockey is spread, IHW is beginning to create specific projects within the wiki for specific aspects of the sport. Here is a list of all the projects ongoing within the IHW. You are free to join any ongoing project or to start new ones at any time, but in the latter case, you should first check if there is not already one in progress covering what you plan to work on.

  • IHW Project:Ontario hockey - a project aiming to gather all the data about ice hockey in Ontario.
  • IHW Project:Hockey towns - a project aiming to build complete all-time lists of ice hockey teams and players based in or hailing from every city and town worldwide
  • IHW Project:NCAA Hockey - a project aiming to build the most complete reference about NCAA hockey.
  • IHW Project:Chronology of Hockey - a project that aims to gather all the important dates in the history of hockey
  • IHW Project:Hockey Cards - a project for the collectors, aiming at building a comprehensive and complete encyclopedia of the history of hockey cards, that so many of us probably collected at one point in our lives.
  • IHW Project:Women's hockey - a project aiming at building the most comprehensive and complete encyclopedia on women's ice hockey. The focus includes events, players and teams at Olympic, national, and collegiate levels.
