At the 1936 Winter Olympics, Great Britain won the men's ice hockey competition. Eleven of the thirteen British players had trained and played previously in Canada sometime during their career. It is a common misconception that the British team was made up of Canadians. Only one player was actually born in Canada.

N.B. - Tournament rules stated that relevant results from the semi-final round would be carried over to the final round. After the semi-final round, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association and the German organizers appealed against this rule and asked that in the final stage all four teams should play each other with the semi-final results ignored. This appeal was overwhelmingly rejected by the Olympic authorities. Thus, the 11 February games of Canada vs. Great Britain and the United States vs. Czechoslovakia were counted as games in the final round, hence their replication in both tables.
