Olympic medal record
Bronze 1932 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey

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 German national team at the Deutschland Cup 2006 (Hanover)

The team is not considered to be as elite as Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Switzerland, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden or the USA, but they are ranked 11th in the world by the IIHF. The team has not been able to break through in the past few years. Since re-unification, their best recent results include finishing 6th place at the 2003 World Championships where they lost a close quarter-final match in overtime to Canada. Previously, they finished third in the European Group and qualified for the quarter-finals at the 1996 World Cup after a surprising 7-1 victory against the Czech Republic. 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 a bronze in the 1934 World Championships. Their best result was a silver medal at the 1930 World Championships.

There are 25,934 registered players in Germany (0.03% of its population).

In December 2005 Uwe Krupp became head coach.
