Ice hockey is a minor sport that is gaining popularity in China.

The Chinese Ice Hockey Championship has been held since 1953. The country’s top team, China Dragon, plays in the multi-national Asia League Ice Hockey. China has men’s, women’s and junior national teams.

Kontinental Hockey League is the other top tier league the Chinese compete in.

Andong Song was the first Chinese player drafted by the New York Islanders in the 6th round (172nd overall) in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The China national ice hockey teams are making major preparations for improvements in order to be competitive for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
