    Posted by japanstats on 2008 February 2日 Saturday

    According to Japanese ice hockey commentator “Kataribe” Jiro-san (Japanese), JIHF has announced the national team selection schedule (information not on JIHF site yet) for the senior national teams that will be competing in this year’s IIHF World Championships. Japan will host the men’s Division I Group B tournament in Sapporo, Hokkaido at the Tsukisamu Arena.

    Preliminary selections of 40 players for the men’s team and 30 players for the women’s team will be announced on 9 February in Kushiro, Hokkaido.

    The men’s roster will be trimmed down to 30 players at the 1 March announcement. (Location TBA.)

    Men’s selection camp with the 30 players will be held starting on 31 March in Tomakomai, Hokkaido. 2 training matches will be scheduled (opponents TBD) and the final roster of 23 players will be announced in Sapporo on 12 April, the day before the start of the tournament.

    Dates and locations above are subject to change, and further details for the women’s team selection process was not announced.

    JIHF press release: Surpass Kagawa threepeats in J Ice West

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 January 19日 Saturday

    The 2nd round of J Ice West competition was held at the Villa Sanuki Ice Arena in Miki-shi, Kida-gun, Kagawa-ken over 12 and 13 January.

    Surpass Kagawa, Fukuoka selects, Hyogo selects, and Hiroshima selects participated in this tournament, and western Japan powerhouse Surpass Kagawa dominated all of their games to easily win the J Ice West crown for the third straight season. (The competition structure is unusual in that the teams do not face each other equal number of times, in other words an unbalanced schedule. This probably results in final standings that may not be truly representative of team strengths.)


    J Ice West competition final scores (1st and 2nd rounds):

    2007.12.15 Surpass Kagawa 8 – 2 Hiroshima selects (Kobe Port Island Ice Arena)

    2007.12.15 Fukuoka selects 4 – 5 Hyogo selects (Kobe Port Island Ice Arena)

    2007.12.16 Hiroshima selects 0 – 5 Fukuoka selects (Kobe Port Island Ice Arena)

    2007.12.16 Surpass Kagawa 8 – 1 Hyogo selects (Kobe Port Island Ice Arena)

    2008.1.12 Surpass Kagawa 13 – 3 Hiroshima selects (Villa Sanuki Ice Arena)

    2008.1.12 Fukuoka selects 6 – 4 Hyogo selects (Villa Sanuki Ice Arena)

    2008.1.13 Hiroshima selects 6 – 3 Hyogo selects (Villa Sanuki Ice Arena)

    2008.1.13 Surpass Kagawa 10 – 1 Fukuoka selects (Villa Sanuki Ice Arena)

    Final Standings:

    1. Surpass Kagawa 4 – 0 (GF/GA 39/7)

    2. Fukuoka selects 2 – 2 (16/19)

    3. Hyogo selects 1 – 3 (13/24)

    4. Hiroshima selects 1 – 3 (11/29)

    JIHF Press Release Re: Mouth Guard Rules

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 January 2日 Wednesday

    2006-2010 Local Rules Additional Clause Addendum Re: Mouth Guard

    As of 1 Jan 2008, white, beige, and transparent mouth guards are unacceptable.

    – Mouth guards must be coloured and easily identifiable。Therefore white, beige, and transparent kinds cannot be used.
    – This rule is effective as of 1 January 2008.

    According to IIHF Rule Book section 227, players that meet certain conditions must wear mouth guards. However, there are no specifications for mouth guards as a piece of equipment. This rule has been implemented as a Japanese local rule in order to improve player safety and improve equipment identification on players and on ice when mouth guards get dropped onto the ice during game play. This is due to recent incidents during university games where fallen mouth guards caused Zambonis to malfunction.
