Maccabi Canada and Maccabi USA have both announced they intend to send teams in men's AND women's hockey to the 2017 Games.
Israel had a women's team about 10 years ago, and was on the verge of applying to the IIHF for membership. Are there any talks about restarting the women's team over the next two years to make this tournament possible? (There would still need to be a 4th team). If not, could the Maccabi Games feature women's hockey without Israel participating?
