International Career : Played for Poland in the Junior World Championships held in Helsinki in 1977. Played four games for West Germany in the 1987 World Championships in Vienna.

Club Career : Played for Kölner EC. See Sikora-case.
Sikora-case
Background : At the World Championships in Vienna on the 20th of April 1987, West Germany defeated Finland 3-1 in the third round. Göran Stubb, former general secretary of the Finnish Ice Hockey Association declared that Finland would protest against the West German player Miroslaw Sikora "because a player who had competed for one country at junior level was not allowed to compete for another nation in a senior Eurorpean Championship or World Championship". It had been decided at the IIHF meeting in Colorado in 1986 that players who had represented a country at junior level in the European Championship would be allowed to represent another nation in a senior European Championship or World Championship. The motion had been proposed by Günther Sabetzki and seemed to accomodate Miroslaw Sikora, who had lived and played hockey in West Germany for almost ten years. However, Sikora was not included in the 30 man roster that Xavier Unsinn sent, to the World Championship organising committee, two months before the tournament. Jan-Åke Edvinsson, general secretary of IIHF, later gave Sikora the green light after contacts with both the Polish and Czechoslovakian Ice Hockey Associations, as both countries verified that Sikora not competed in any junior World Championship. Twenty-four hours before the inaugural game on the 16th of April, all teams had to leave their rosters and passports of competing players with the organising committee. Miroslaw Sikora was now in the West German roster. On the 21st of April Kalervo Kummola presented the official game reports from the junior World Championship in Helsinki 1977 and Sikora's name is all over it. At the same time West Germany defeat Canada 5-3.  
Protest 1 :
Finland, Canada, Switzerland and USA protest to the IIHF and call for the disqualification of West Germany - Finland and Canada wanted the points, Switzerland wanted to stay in Pool A and the USA don't want to play against West Germany with Sikora in the team (also, the top six teams would gain entry to the Canada Cup). On the 22nd of April, the IIHF decide they cannot let Sabetzki handle the case because he is West German. The case is handed over to the Czechoslovakian vice president, Subrt and the IIHF board of directors held an inquiry with Sikora. Sikora declared that he did not remember if it was a European or World Championship he played in Poland in 1977, but he was there.
Solutions :
The IIHF rules provide for two possible solutions (a) West Germany disqualification from the tournament in Vienna and demotion to Pool B - in which case matches involving West Germany would be void, (b) Life time disqualification of Sikora from national events - in which case matches involving West Germany would stand.
Decision 1 : Sikora will be sent home with a lifetime disqualification from national events and the results from games against Finland and Canada was invalid. The new results are 5-0 wins for Finland and Canada.
Protest 2 :
West Germany, Sweden and the USSR protest saying that the IIHF has not followed its own rules. On the 23th of April, the IIHF council leave the West German, Swedish and Soviet protest without response. The West Germans went to civil court and summon IIHF to the Landesgericht in Vienna.
Solutions : The Landesgericht concluded that the IIHF was subject to Austrian laws and on the 25th of April, Fritz Klebermass, judge of the Landesgericht declared that, because the IIHF had already sent Sikora home and West Germany was still in the tournament, the IIHF had broken their own rules when they took victories away from West Germany - either (a) the West German victories count or (b) the West German team should be disqualified and demoted.  The Landesgericht also declared that members of the IIHF council risked high fines and that Günther Sabetzki could be subject to a maximum of two years in jail if the IIHF did not follow the orders from the Landesgericht.
Decision 2 :
On the 27th of April, after a voting in the IIHF council, vice president Subrt, declared that all results will be set to original way.
Result :
Finland and Sweden change places with each other in the round robin. Sweden played the champion round and won gold. Finland had to play qualifiing round. The IIHF decide that they will not be over ruled by a civil court again. Switzerland proclaim that civil courts or Swiss laws would not intervene in organistations like the IIHF. Some weeks later the IIHF headquarters moved from Vienna for Zürich.
