Hong Kong as the hub of Asia is home to the elite, the powerful, and the wealthy not only in the territory but also in the region. Inspired by this kind of strength, the Hong Kong Tycoons are just as comfortable with a hockey stick in their hands and always raves to dominate on the ice just as their namesake rules the city.
Last season's runner up, the high scoring Oceanwide Financial Hong Kong Tycoons will look for two time league scoring champion Lucas Eshleman and an improved defensive core to get back to the CIHL Championship game for the fourth consecutive year.
Unlike the other founding CIHL teams, the Kowloon Warriors pay homage to history, capturing the fighting spirit of traditional Chinese martial arts. Brave, disciplined and experienced, the Warriors are ready to do battle on ice.
The AsiaXPAT Kowloon Warriors will look to improve upon last season's playoff loss with their fast paced, physical brand of hockey led by their captain and CIHL all-time leading scorer, Gregory Smyth.
Representing the neighbouring SAR, CIHL founding team the Macau Aces bring pure skill, a thirst for winning and an intuitive ability to read the competition. While a lucky pot of gold can never hurt, talent outweighs blind luck every time. Still, don’t be surprised if a few lucky pucks bounce their way and the Aces take more than their fair share of the winnings.
Coming off their first CIHL Championship, the Manulife Macau Aces will look to repeat the feat in 2017-2018. With strong team defense and scoring prowess, the Aces are primed for another run at the Oceanwide Financial Cup.
The South China Sharks joined the CIHL as the only team to be representing the increasingly winter sports-mad Mainland China. Fast, energetic, yet stealthy and clever, the Sharks are always looking to take a bite out of the competition.
The Scotiabank South China Sharks look to bounce back after a disappointing 2016-2017 campaign. Led by the dynamic scoring duo of Jordan So and Brad Holman, the Sharks are hungry for a return to championship form.
