I know there has been talk of the NHL and IIHF setting up a game between the Stanley Cup winners and the European Cup winners, but there has been zero interest from NHL clubs. Sometimes NHL teams will play exhibition or early season games in Europe..they were in Russia a few seasons ago and Anaheim and Vancouver played in Japan at the beginning of this season ( to raise interest for the Olympics. I saw the Chinese women's team play the Canadians twice (both losses but they were surprisingly good..comparatively much better than their men's team). I've also seen the men's team from Japan play (I will draw a veil). I talked to someone from Australia a while bacj who said the game is played there but I've never done a web search on it. I've also talked to a player from Spain..I imagine there will be fanatics everywhere!!
