The 1949–50 NCAA Division I men's ice hockey season began in November 1949 and concluded with the 1950 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament's championship game on March 18, 1950 at the Broadmoor Ice Palace in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This was the 3rd season in which an NCAA ice hockey championship was held and is the 56th year overall where an NCAA school fielded a team.

Army, who had been fielding an ice hockey team continually since 1904, elevated the program to major status in 1949.[1]

Boston University began to sponsor ice hockey as a sport for this season and was selected as one of the two eastern representatives for the NCAA tournament.
