The Croatian Ice Hockey League is the top ice hockey league in Croatia. At the end of the season the Croatian Championship is held.

The modern league was formed in 1991 with the dissolution of Yugoslavia. Until then Croatian teams played in the Yugoslav Ice Hockey League. It is operated by the Croatian Ice Hockey Federation.

During times of Yugoslavia, for a period of time, the Croatian Championship was held parallelly with Yugoslav championship.

Due to the very short duration of the season, Croatian teams often play in other leagues, such as the Slohokej Liga, Erste Bank Eishockey Liga and the now defunct Interliga and Panonian League.
