Brussels Sprouts International – sent in anonymously. Below are details from the anonymous person.
Team Finlande’s (rather funny name isn’t it?) origin in Belgium goes back to early 90’s and to a group of Finnish journalists accredited to Brussels. They just wanted to skate and play “back yard” hockey and to have fun among themselves and their kids. They wore no protection at that time, only skates, stick and puck. After a friendly game some time around 1996, final score 19-0 for Team Finlande, the team was invited to attend Championnat JC.
