The 1896–97 Yale Bulldogs men's ice hockey season was the 2nd season of play for the program.

Season[edit | edit source]

Though the team had lost its founder and driving force to graduation (Malcolm Greene Chace), Yale continued to support it's men's hockey team. The second season saw a series of firsts for the program, including its first home game, its first game against an eventual Ivy League member and its first losing season. The team did not have a coach, however, John Hall served as team manager.

Most of Yale's games were played against amateur athletic clubs but all games were counted for the Bulldogs' record.
