Olympic medal record
Bronze 1976 Ice Hockey

The West German national men's ice hockey team was a national ice hockey team created after World War II when Germany was split into East and West Germany. Except in 1984, when it was invited to the Canada Cup, the West German team was not considered to be as elite as Canada, Sweden, the United States, Czechoslovakia, Finland or the Soviet Union, but it was often ranked high enough in the world by the IIHF to participate in international tournaments. By 1991 the team ceased to exist due to the re-unification of East and West Germany.

The Biggest Accomplishment from the West German team, came in 1976 at the Winter Olympics, when the team went 2-3-0 and won the bronze medal. The team's wins came against USA (4-1) and Poland (7-4). The team also played well against the Silver Medalists: Czechoslovakia and the Gold Medalists: USSR.
