North American Hockey Portal

The Ice Hockey Wiki, in its aim to cover hockey as thoroughly as possible, pays special attention to minor professional, senior, junior, and university hockey, areas where information is often difficult to find on the internet. Our members have already gathered results and standings of hundreds of seasons of these hockey leagues and keep doing so, making IHW one of the most complete references in the domain.

Championships

Most countries where organized ice hockey is played have 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 country; 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 81 members and takes care of organizing the ice hockey events during the Olympic Games, the World Championships and several other competitions such as the IIHF World U20 Championship, IIHF World U18 Championships, IIHF Women's World Championships, IIHF World Women's U18 Championships, Continental Cup, the Champions Hockey League and the IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia. 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.

See the International Competitions portal for more.

In the news

  • December 14, 2023 The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is renamed the Quebec Maritmes Junior Hockey League in a unanimous vote of the league's Assembly of Members. The change was made in recognition of the league's expansion into the Maritime provinces and the contributions and success, whose teams had been a part of the QMJHL for almost 30 years by that point.

Did you know that...

... Queen Victoria, according to personal writings of Lord Stanley of Preston, played goaltender at an ice hockey game organized by his son Arthur, and was played on the frozen over reflecting pond at Buckingham Palace during a cold stretch in 1895. In the journal he recorded the final score as 0-0, which was proper and as it should be.

... 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 6 titles most recently in 2016. The Goodall Cup celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2009.

...Danny Lewicki is the only person to win the Memorial (1948 with the Port Arthur West End Bruins), Allan (1950 with the Toronto Marlboros), and Stanley Cups (1951 with the Toronto Maple Leafs).

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!

If you have any question about the wiki itself or about editing, you should ask one of our active administrators: Dtalbot or MarchandTriedToLickMe.

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! Also check out the Community portal.

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.
