Ice hockey in Iceland

I'll be in Reykjavik from 5/1/14 to 9/1/14 and wondered what the situation was like for watching some ice hockey whilst in the country. Thanks in advance.

Ice hockey has been played for many years in Iceland - that's true! But it is not too popular sport, we have maximum 2-3 teems in all of the country I think. So I think what Diane means is that it's not gonna be easy finding a game to watch. And if you find one it is likely that there will only be few people watching it.
