The exact number isn't known, of course, because in addition to those registered with official provincial, state, & national federations, many people such as myself play hockey for fun on local rinks all the time. I would suggest you go to the official international website at and check the list of nations where hockey is played. There they will tell you at least how many players are registered with each national federation.
