Team Luxembourg Equipment Manager Jesper Miquel
There's more to the success of an Ice hockey team than just the players and coaching staff. Equipment manager Jesper Miquel was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to give us a tour of the Team Luxembourg dressing room. We must also give a shout-out to Olivier Worré who trained Jesper for the job.
1st Ever Luxembourg Girls' Game
On Sunday 17th February 2019 the Ice hockey world changed forever. Over a 44 hour span, across a record 40 nations, the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) hosted the #GlobalGirlsGame. Starting in New Zealand, competing ladies were split into 2 teams, White vs Blue, with the scores of each nations' matches being accumulated across the globe. Amongst those countries, for the first time ever, was Luxembourg. Our tiny nation of 600,000 inhabitants continues to defy the odds by showcasing talented hockey players no matter the age, nationality or gender. The match in Luxembourg ended White 5-3 Blue but collectively Team Blue would win the Global Girls Game by a score of 137-135. A special congratulations has to go out to EVERYONE involved in Luxembourg hockey. From it's inception and enrollement in the IIHF in 1912, all the way to the present day. Hockey in Luxembourg continues to grow and smash participation and attendance records each and every season.
