The German men's national ice hockey team first participated in serious international competition at the 1911 European Hockey Championship. When Germany was split after World War II, the hockey team was also split into the West German national ice hockey team and the East German national ice hockey team. By 1991, the teams were replaced by the current German team controlled by the Deutscher Eishockey-Bund.

The Team[]

The team is not considered to be as elite as Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Switzerland, Russia, Sweden or the USA, but they are ranked 7th in the world by the IIHF. The team has not been able to break through in the 2000s and early 2010s (with one exception in 2010 when they finished in 4th place at 2010 World Championship). But since 2015, they are getting better and better and are getting closer to the "Big Six". Since re-unification, their best recent results include finishing 2nd place at the 2018 WOG where they lost a close final match to Olympic Athletes from Russia. In the 1992 Olympics, they lost to Canada 4-3 in an overtime shoot-out in the quarter-finals.

Germany has never won an international competition, and their most recent medal was the silver in the 2018 Olympics. Their best result was a silver medal at the 1930 World Championship and at the 2018 Olympics.

There are 21,340 registered players in Germany (0.025 % of its population).
