The Swiss men's national ice hockey team is a founding member of the International Ice Hockey Federation and is controlled by the Schweizerischer Eishockeyverband. As of 2008 the Swiss team was ranked 7th in the IIHF World Ranking. Switzerland has not won a medal at a major tournament since a bronze medal at the 1953 World Championships, but they came close in 1998, finishing in 4th place.

The Swiss national hockey team scored two historic, unexpected upsets at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, defeating the Czech Republic 3-2 and blanking Canada 2-0 two days later. They finally fell to Sweden in the quarterfinals.

Switzerland has a total of 26,989 players (0.35% of its population). Their coach is Ralph Krueger.
