Ice Hockey in the CSDS

Throughout the history of ice hockey in the CSDS, the sport was never very widespread, being most popular in Slovenia, Croatia and Bulgaria. During the years of national competition, only two cities in Dalmatia (Dinamo Agram and Striala Roja Metlika), six cities and towns in Serbia and one city in Sanjak (Krila Danubije Užice) had ice hockey clubs. In Bulgaria, most large cities had an ice hockey club, while in Slovenia and Croatia nearly every city and town had its own club.

The national team of the CSDS thus drew heavily on Slovenian and Croatian players, though quite a few Bulgarian and Serbian players were also significant stars of Danubian hockey through the years. Only one Sanjaki player became a regular star for the national team, the goalkeeper Nermin Halilagić, who was the starting keeper through the late 1960s and early 1970s, and who holds the distinction of having been the number one goalie for the famed squad that won the 1968 Division One World Championships, earning promotion to the elite pool for the only time in CSDS history. Two Dalmatian players can be considered stars, Izidor Cimiroticz, who likewise played on the 1968 and 1969 teams and was the first Danubian player to play in the Bohemian league, and Romulu Florinesku, who scored a hat-trick in the 1979 Division Two World Championship. The CSDS national team won a total of four world championships at various levels - the Division One title in 1968, and three Division Two titles, in 1979, 1988 and 1990.
