  11. ROAD TO BEIJING 2022 1st QUALIFYING ROUND --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Chinese Taipei advances in Olympic Qualification For four teams, the road to Beijing 2022 began in China’s smallest, southernmost province on Hainan Island. At the start of a record-breaking Olympic cycle, with 46 countries taking part, the city of Sanya hosted possibly the most exotic qualification group. Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Thailand and Kuwait met in the South China Sea to determine who would progress to the second qualifying phase next month. Originally, Hong Kong was scheduled to host the event. However, political unrest there forced a change of plan and the TUS Ice and Snowpark in Sanya was nominated as a substitute venue. The loss of home advantage hampered Hong Kong, and the group’s second seed finished in third after a surprise loss to Thailand. But Chinese Taipei had no troubles acclimatising to the sub-tropical heat and will advance to play in Group L in Barcelona after winning all three games. In December, Taipei will take on host Spain, Mexico and the Netherlands in a bid to go even further. Chinese Taipei began the tournament with a hard-fought 5-3 win over Thailand. The teams were locked at 1-1 after 40 minutes before Taipei jumped to a 3-1 lead early in third. Thailand rallied to level the scores on power-play goals for Papan Thanakroekkiat and Patrick Forstner but lost out to two goals in the last two minutes from Shao-Yang Yu and Sung-Yin Yu. The next outing was a comfortable 8-0 victory over Kuwait, with two goals from Po-Yun Hsiao leading the way. That had the team almost certain of qualification, but there was still a showdown against Hong Kong to come on Sunday. A heavy loss in regulation could see Taipei miss out in a three-way tie, and Hong Kong did everything it could to keep its slim hopes alive. A short-handed goal after 91 seconds saw Chi Lok Chau give Hong Kong the lead, but Hung-Ju Lin responded with two for Taipei to secure a 2-1 lead at the first intermission. The teams traded four goals in the middle frame as the lead grew to 4-1 before Justin Cheng and Chi Lok Chau reduced the arrears. A wild third period saw Hong Kong move 6-5 up before penalty trouble halted the advance. Two power play goals in barely two minutes put Taipei back on top and an empty-net goal sealed a 7-5 win and secured a 100% record. Hong Kong’s campaign was a frustrating one. The team began strongly, with a 12-0 thrashing of Kuwait in its opening game. But the second fixture brought an unexpected 2-7 loss against Thailand, clearing the way for Chinese Taipei to hit the front. The Thai bounced back from an opening loss against Chinese Taipei and stunned Hong Kong with three unanswered goals in the first period, despite twice facing a 3-on-5 penalty kill. Thailand outperformed its seeding to take second place, wrapping its campaign with an 11-1 thrashing of Kuwait. The Kingdom was lifted by some strong individual performances. Two Thai defencemen were among the top-three scorers at the event. Ken Kindborn, a 24-year-old dual national from Sweden, captained the Thai, served as assistant coach and led by example with 10 (3+7) points from three games. Fellow blue liner Hideki Nagayama, Bangkok-born and boasting experience of lower league hockey in Canada, Denmark, Sweden and Germany, had 8 (1+7). They were separated at the top of the scoring chart by Hong Kong’s Justin Cheng. The 21-year-old, currently playing in Canada’s Greater Metro Hockey League with the London Lakers, potted 9 (7+2) to finish as the tournament’s leading goal scorer. Cheng is also prolific in the GMHL, with 23 (8+15) points from 10 games so far this season. IIHF.COM
  12. ROAD TO BEIJING 2022 1st QUALIFYING ROUND --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kyrgyz win on Olympic Qualification debut Kyrgyzstan’s first foray into the attempt of qualifying for Olympic ice hockey was a huge success, with the Central Asian nation winning the Group N of the first round with a game to spare. Victories over the United Arab Emirates and host nation Luxembourg gave the Kyrgyz team an unassailable lead in the four-team group ahead of Sunday’s match-up with winless Bosnia & Herzegovina. First place in the group allows Kyrgyzstan to progress to the second phase of qualifying, which takes place next month. Pavel Sazonov’s team will contest in the second of four rounds in Group K in Brasov, Romania, facing the host nation, Iceland and Israel. Friday’s opening games at the Patinoire de Kockelscheuer on Friday saw Kyrgyzstan battle hard for two periods against the United Arab Emirates before pulling away in the third to win 9-4. Later in the day, top-seeded Luxembourg roared to a 10-0 victory over Bosnia & Herzegovina, with forward Vlad Shelest potting a hat trick the day after his 17th birthday. That set up a Saturday night showdown between Kyrgyzstan and Luxembourg with both nations knowing victory in regulation would effectively seal a place in the next phase. A Kyrgyz win would settle the issue on the night, although success for the host would still leave a theoretical chance for the UAE if results went its way on Sunday. There was a sense of anticipation at the Kockelscheuer rink ahead of the game. Luxembourg had neither played nor hosted an Olympic Qualification tournament before and the event had attracted near-capacity crowds to the 1,000-seater rink, with some fans even traveling from neighbouring Germany to witness the action. Despite the lively home support, though, Kyrgyzstan settled to its task quicker and had the better of the play in the first period. Experienced home goalie Philippe Lepage needed to perform strongly, stopping 12 shots at his goal. Then, late in the frame, Shelest, star of the opening night win over the Bosnians, set up Marcus Eriksson for a wrister from the top of the circle to open the scoring. Everything changed in the second period. Kyrgyzstan scored four unanswered goals, led by Vladimir Nosov. The 22-year-old forward scored twice and moved onto 7 (4+3) points for the tournament. Like most of the Kyrgyz roster, he plays for the Dordoi club in the national championship. Clubmate Artem Gorodets picked up a goal and an assist, with Anton Kudashev of the Kyrgyz Temir Johly club also finding the net. Down but not out, Luxembourg battled back hard in the third. After the host had killed a penalty early in the frame, Sacha Backes forced a turnover in the corner and popped the puck to the doorstep for the unmarked Mirko Mosr to make it 2-4 with 11 minutes to play. The chances kept coming: Shelest made an intercept that saw goalie Aleksandr Petrov make a smart stop to deny Colm Cannon, then an odd-man rush saw Backes thwarted by the goalie. The home crowd started to believe again, and when Cannon saw his wrist shot squeeze through Petrov and dribble into the net the fightback was very much on. But Kyrgyzstan was not about to crumble just minutes before winning the group. Pavel Sazonov’s team kept its shape and closed out the game, adding an empty net goal from Vladimir Tonkikh to seal the win. Tonkikh, like Nosov, moved to four goals from the tournament; UAE’s Artur Zainutdinov, another Russian-born player in the tournament, leads the goal scoring with five and the three are tied on seven points each after two games. Kyrgyzstan’s progress is a big boost for a country that only joined the IIHF as recently as 2011. Prior to that, it had competed successfully in the Asian Winter Games, winning the second-tier competition there in 2011, shortly before it was accepted into the IIHF. In 2014, Bishkek hosted the IIHF Ice Hockey Challenge Cup of Asia Division I and Kyrgyzstan reached the final only to lose to Macau, the country’s first hockey defeat in the modern era. The team also performed strongly at the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division III Qualification in Kuwait but saw four of its five wins annulled due to a player eligibility issues before winning the last game. There’s a strong Russian accent to the team. Many of the players have Russian heritage and chants of ‘Shaibu’ and ‘Molodtsy’ were often heard among the small group of traveling supporters at the arena. Head coach Sazonov was born in Udmurtia, began his playing career at Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk and spent much of his time on the ice in Russia’s lower divisions. He also played extensively in Kazakhstan and represented Kyrgyzstan in the 2011 Asian Winter Games. For tournament host Luxembourg, failure to qualify was a disappointment. The country was the top seed as it entered the Olympic cycle for the first time but could not convert that into top spot in the group. However, there are still many positives for the Lions as they look ahead to World Championship Division III action later this season to be hosted at the same arena. The emergence of 17-year-old Shelest as a dangerous forward was merely the most obvious reward for the federation’s recent emphasis on promoting young players; apart from him, Demir Mededovic (19), Markus Beran (17) and 16-year-old David Church all gained valuable experience.

  17. when Ice Hockey became a matter of hundreds of seconds lol... Our "lazy" forward Zuzin send this puck in all absolute lazyness to the empty net...the puck apparently passed the goal line 2 hundreds of second after the final buzzer ! Nothing important you would say, well if this goal was counted we would finished the tournament in 2nd place and thus won higher prize money etc...by this increduble lazyness we had to play the overtime and were already assured to finish last 4th. Matter of 2 hundreds of second ... may be a good lesson for Peter Zuzin for the future, maybe it´s better to sometimes try and move your ass faster !

For 4 minutes during the 3rd period of the last Sanya´s group match between and it was even Thailand who was somehow suddenly on a qualifying position ! but Taipei succeeded to score 3 unanswered goals in the last 10 minutes of the game to win that prestigious derby to overturn the destiny and win the tickets to Barcelona next month.
