International Hockey Wiki:About
The International Hockey Wiki is a website that aims to be a comprehensive database on hockey around the world. Information on leagues, teams, players, hockey-playing countries, and international competitions involving club and national teams is all featured on here. Much of the data found on the wiki is not available anywhere else on the Internet.
Areas of Coverage
These are the main areas covered on the wiki:
- International competitions in all eras
- European teams, leagues, arenas and seasons in all eras
- Asian, African, South American, and Oceanic hockey
- World/European Championship and Olympic Games players who competed prior to 1950
These areas are covered as well, but are not main focuses of the website:
- National Hockey League teams and seasons
- Early North American teams and seasons
The primary focus of the website is undoubtedly on European hockey. There are plans to expand coverage on North American teams and competitions in the future, but it will likely not be all-encompassing. The possibility of expanding the players database to include post-1950 and non-international players also remains a consideration.
