History

Formed in 2006, Algeria is currently not a member of the IIHF. The national team was formed with the increasing number of Algerians who are playing ice hockey around the world. In June 2008, Algeria took part in the inaugural Arab Cup in Abu Dhabi, also involving the national teams of Kuwait, Morocco, and the host nation, the UAE. Algeria finished last, with Algerian forward, Harond Litim winning the MVP of the tournament award.[1]

In April 2009, it was announced that Nordine Mahdidi, a member of the 2008 Arab Cup team, would take over as Head Coach of the team.
