The Dutch men's national ice hockey team is the national men's ice hockey of the Netherlands.

The Netherlands are currently ranked 24th in the IIHF World Ranking and currently compete in IIHF World Championship Division I.

The Netherlands competed in the 1980 Olympic ice hockey competition. They then competed in Pool A of the 1981 World Ice Hockey Championships.

In the 1980 Winter Olympics, The Netherlands, competed in the Red division group, and had a record of 1-3-1. They lost to Canada (10-1), they lost to the Soviet Union (17-4), they tied Japan (3-3), they beat Poland (5-3), and they lost to Finland (10-3).

One year later, the team returned to the top division in the 1981 World Ice Hockey Championships. In the first round, the team lost all of their games, followed by another 3 losses in the final round. Now they compete in Division 1, hoping to stay competitive and maybe move up to the Championship division.
