Tre Konor

The Swedish men's national ice hockey team, or Tre Kronor ("Three Crowns" in Swedish), as it is called in Sweden, is one of the most successful ice hockey teams in the world. The IIHF currently ranks them fourth. The team is controlled by the Swedish Ice Hockey Association, and it is considered a member of the "Big Six", along with Canada, Russia, the USA, Finland and the Czech Republic.

The name Tre Kronor means "Three Crowns" and refers to the three crowns on the team jersey. The three crowns represent the Coat of arms of Sweden of the Kingdom of Sweden and the national emblem. The first time the symbol was used on the national teams jersey was on February 12, 1938, during the 1938 World Championships in Prague.

At the 2006 Winter Olympics they won the gold medal after a thrilling final against Finland, with the score 3-2.

At the 2006 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships, Sweden won the final against the Czech Republic and thus became the first hockey team ever to win at both the Winter Olympics and the World Championships in the same year.

They also won at the 2013, 2017 and 2018 World Championships.
