The Armenian national ice hockey team is the national men's ice hockey team of Armenia. They hosted the Division III, Group B tournament of the 2010 World Championships. They are controlled by the Ice Hockey Federation of Armenia.
In 2008, Armenia was forced to withdraw from a Division III qualification tournament in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina because Armenia refused to show their passports to IIHF officials; this incident resulted in a 2-year suspension for Armenia from any IIHF tournament. The use of ineligible players was also present on Armenia's U20 team.
In 2010, the IIHF allowed Armenia to compete again, under the conditions that Armenia was to release their final roster 6 months prior to any IIHF tournaments. Armenia hosted the 2010 IIHF World Championship Division III in Yerevan, Armenia. After large scale wins over South Africa and Mongolia, Armenia edged DPR Korea 7-6; Armenia later played DPR Korea in the gold medal game, but lost the final, as well as their chance to move ahead to Div II for 2011, 5-2. Days after the tournament, IIHF officials investigated and reported that Armenia had once again used ineligible players; the team was suspended indefinitely, and their statistics and final scores were expunged from the IIHF tournaments with all of their games marked as 5–0 forfeits towards the team.
