The men's hockey national team and its head coach Patrick Fischer were awarded "Team of the Year" and "Coach of the Year", respectively, for their bittersweet silver medal win following the 3-2 shootout loss to Sweden in the final of this year's IIHF World Championship in Copenhagen, Denmark. Overall, it is the national team's third World Championship silver medal after 1935 and 2013.
