It's not one of our main sports in New Zealand but ice hockey is on the rise.
The NZ U18 team came into camp last week preparing for the World Championships and their first game last night against Hong Kong. The NZ team is in division 3 B of the World Championships after being relegated last year from division 3 A.
This year their aim is to use their home court advantage to win the games against Hong Kong and Turkey and head back up to division 3 A. NZ beat Hong Kong 8-5 last night at Botany Rink.
Te Kāea was rink-side last night and brings you a little snippet created by our online team showcasing the lads in action.
Tune into Te Kāea tonight to watch the full report at 5.30pm & 7pm with subtitles.
