Czech Hockey Games is an annual ice hockey event held in Czech Republic. It is part of the Euro Hockey Tour.

The tournament started in 1994 as the Pragobanka Cup but with the new sponsor Česká pojišťovna it changed its name in 1998. In the 1997–98 season, the tournament joined the Euro Hockey Tour and the Slovak national team was replaced with the Finnish national team.

The tournament has always been played between August and September, but was played in April in 2008 and 2009, before moving back to the August–September turn from 2009. From 2011 it is still played in April.

In 2012 the name was changed as Kajotbet took over the sponsorship.

In 2017 - 2019, it was called Carlson Hockey Games and since 2021 it is called simply Czech Hockey Games.

Until 2003 the tournament was played in Zlín at AC ZPS Zlín's home arena. It then moved to the Duhová Aréna in Pardubice and in 2005 to the Tipsport Arena in Liberec, northern Bohemia. The tournament now changes its place every year.
