The Mexican Ice Hockey Federation have announced that the 2014 Pan American Ice Hockey Games will be officially endorsed by the IIHF, a huge step in the right direction after the tournament was originally postponed from its original June starting date.

The tournament will take place from March 2nd-8th in Mexico City, with teams coming from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Columbia and Mexico. It’s rumored that the Canadian and American entries teams comprising of players under the age of 18, but it’s still not known for sure.

Originally, there was uncertainty that the MIHF would be able to run a tournament, however with 23 indoor rinks mixed with IIHF support, it shouldn’t be an issue. The Mexican national team is set to compete in four other IIHF sanctioned tournaments in 2014, including the Div. IIB World Hockey Championships, as well as hosting the Div. IIB Women’s qualifying tournament at the end of March.

While they have never competed at the ice hockey level, Columbia has participated in the FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships, with no success. They are currently not a IIHF member, but that will likely change with this announcement. Brazil joined the IIHF in 1984, but the country has still not participated in any World Championships and like Columbia, has only see action in Inline contests. Argentina has only competed in two official IIHF events, losing 5-1 and 10-1 in back to back games against Mexico.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
