7th Asian Winter Games, Astana/Almary, Kazakhstan
The Malaysian Ice Hockey team was placed fifth out of seven teams in the Men’s Premier Division After winning its first two matches against Bahrain and Kuwait, by 25 goals to zero and 12 goals to 7 respectively, the Malaysian team lost its remaining 4 matches as follows:
- Malaysia lost to Kyrgyzstan 2 – 23
- Malaysia lost to Thailand 1 – 16
- Malaysia lost to UAE 1 – 7
- Malaysia lost to Mongolia 5 – 6
After the match against Kuwait, a few of the Malaysian players fell ill and were either unable to play or could not play up to their normal standard. Against Kyrgyzstan, 3 players were ill and did not play. Another reason for the loses, was the standard of Ice Hockey in the Premier division had improved a lot and the Malaysian team, without the opportunity to play in a standard Olympic size Ice Hockey rink, was an a great disadvantage playing against teams which have been training and competing in full Olympic size Ice Hockey rinks.
