The Czech men's national ice hockey team is the national ice hockey team of the Czech Republic and is controlled by the Czech Ice Hockey Association. It is one of the most successful national ice hockey teams in the world, currently ranked sixth by the IIHF, behind the United States. It is controlled by the Czech Ice Hockey Association.

The Czechs won the gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics and won three straight gold medals at the world championships from 1999 to 2001. In the next three years, the team did not get a medal at the world championships — not even home at the 2004 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships held in Prague and Ostrava, thus keeping the "world championship home ice curse" alive. But the following year, the Czechs won gold at the the 2005 tournament, the only world championship where, due to the 2004–05 NHL lockout, all NHL players were available to participate.

At the 2006 Winter Olympics, the Czechs won a bronze medal, defeating Russia 3–0 ( roster) in the bronze medal game, and becoming one of only three nations — along with Russia and Finland — to medal twice in ice hockey at the Olympic games since the NHL allowed its players to participate in this event. At the 2006 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships, the Czechs won silver, falling to Sweden in the final. The Czech Republic has 72,075 players officially enrolled in organized hockey (0.7% of its population).
