Norwegian National U20 Team

In 1979, Norway participated at the Pool A level in Karlstad, Sweden. However, Norway managed only 2 goals in their first appearance. Norway did not return to Pool A until 1983, staying until 1991. Norway would have to wait 15 years to reappear at the top level. In the 2006 World Junior Hockey Championships in Vancouver, Norway lost 11-2 to the United States and 4-0 in a hard fought game to Canada. Near the end of that game, frustrations boiled over as Norway and Canada nearly engaged in a brawl. Norway is currently playing within the Division I level.
