The Adustelan Skuas are a professional ice hockey team based in the City of Adustelan that competes in the National Hockey League (NHL). The team plays its home games at the Joel-Cranston Crosscourts Arena. As of 2020, they are the only NHL franchise located outside of the United States and Canada.

The team was founded in 2003, and played as a member of the Carrawayan Hockey Association for its first two years, an association which consisted of only the Skuas and the Jan Beach Scavengers.

Since NHL play commenced in 2005, the team has been an exceptional case in the league in that it has operated independent of any of the league's four divisions as a consequence of lingering provisions imposed by the then recently repealed 1976 Carrawayan Corporate Enterprise Embargo. The team thus was originally unable to be considered for Stanley Cup playoff contention and was largely operated as an exhibition team until 2013, when the NHL playoff rules were updated to allow for conference-wide wild card picks to qualify for the playoffs. In this circumstance, the Skuas exist as a Western conference team; as such their only current route to the playoffs is through being picked as a wild card team for the Western conference.

Since their inaugural season, the Skuas have only qualified for the playoffs one time (2020), however the team was ordered by the Carrawayan government to opt out of the 2020 NHL playoffs due to the continuing coronavirus pandemic.
