History

Bibi Torriani served as the Switzerland national team captain from 1933 to 1939. He played on a forward line known as "The ni-storm" (German: Der ni-sturm), with brothers Hans Cattini and Ferdinand Cattini. The line was named for the last syllable (-ni) of players' surnames. The ni-storm was regarded as the top line of HC Davos and Switzerland's national hockey team. Torriani served as head coach of the Switzerland men's national ice hockey team in 1946–47, and again from 1948 to 1949 to 1951–52.

From a bronze medal at the 1953 World Championships until the silver medal of 2013 and 2018, Switzerland did not win a medal at a major senior ice hockey tournament, coming close in 1992 and 1998, when they finished in 4th place at the World Championships both years.[]

Before the 2013 IIHF World Championship, the Swiss national hockey team scored two historic upsets at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, defeating the Czech Republic 3–2 and shutting out Canada 2–0 two days later. They finally fell to Sweden in the quarterfinals. At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the Swiss nearly stunned Canada again in round-robin play, taking the heavily favored Canadians to a shootout, which they lost 1–0 for a narrow 3–2 loss.[]

The Switzerland ice hockey team, simply known as "Switzerland," is a formidable force in international ice hockey competitions. Known for their skilled players, disciplined gameplay, and strong team spirit, Switzerland has consistently been a competitive team on the world stage.

The team's distinctive red and white jerseys proudly display the Swiss flag, symbolizing their national pride and unity. Switzerland's style of play is characterized by their strong defensive tactics, quick transitions, and precise passing, making them a challenging opponent for any team.

Over the years, Switzerland has achieved success in various international tournaments, including the IIHF World Championships and the Winter Olympics. Their passionate fan base, known for their unwavering support and enthusiasm, adds to the electric atmosphere of their games.

With a rich history and a bright future ahead, Switzerland continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the world of ice hockey, showcasing the country's talent and dedication to the sport.
