The United States men's national ice hockey team is the national team for the United States, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The team is controlled by USA Hockey. It is currently ranked 6th at the IIHF World Ranking. The United States won the silver medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics, and the gold medal at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. Their most recent medal at the World Championships came in 2018 with a bronze and they won the tournament in 1960 and 1933. At the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, the U.S. was unable to defend its title, losing to Finland in the semi-finals. Most recently, the team finished seventh in the 2019 IIHF World Championship. Their current head coach is Jeff Blashill. As of 2007, the United States has a total of 567,908 registered ice hockey players (0.17% of its population).

Team USA's greatest success was the "Miracle on Ice" at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, when they defeated the heavily favored Soviet Union on the way to a gold medal. Though hockey is not a universally popular sport in the United States, the "Miracle" is often listed as one of the greatest achievements in the history of American sports.

U.S. hockey had a spike in talent in the 1990s with top NHL stars like Brett Hull, Jeremy Roenick, Mike Richter, Brian Leetch and Mike Modano and as a result, the team won the World Cup and earned a silver medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics. But by 2006, many of these All-Stars had retired or lost their skill with age. Though the 2006 Olympic Team finished a disappointing 8th place, it was more of a transitional team, featuring young NHL players like Rick DiPietro, Jordan Leopold and John-Michael Liles. In Vancouver in 2010, the U.S. won the silver medal after losing to Team Canada in overtime, 3-2, on Sidney Crosby's game-winning goal at 7:40 of the first overtime period. Zach Parise tied the game for U.S. at 2 with only 25 seconds left to send the game into overtime before Crosby scored the game-winner.
