The Russian women's national ice hockey team is controlled by Ice Hockey Federation of Russia. On April 1, 1994, Russia played its first game in Brampton, Canada, lost by 1-2 to Switzerland.[1] Russia is currently ranked 6th in the world in women's ice hockey. It has been very difficult for the Russians to move higher than this position, except for in the 2001 Women's World Ice Hockey Championships, where they surprised many by upsetting Finland in the bronze medal final 2-1. Russia has 278 female players at 2009.[2] The head coach is Valentin Gureev.[3]
