The United States competed in the inaugural Olympic ice hockey tournament. The team cruised through its quarterfinal, beating Switzerland 29–0. The Americans met Canada in a semifinal matchup; the two were clearly the best teams in the tournament. Canada came out the better, winning 2–0 to send the United States into the silver medal tournament. There, the Americans beat Sweden and Czechoslovakia by a combined score of 23–0 to emerge winners of the silver medal, benefiting from the Bergvall System used in 1920.

Exhibition seriesEdit

Before leaving for Antwerp, the American team played a series of exhibition games in Pittsburgh. These games were partially preparatory and partially to raise money for the trip, which was estimated to cost $12,000.

They played against some of the top Canadian senior teams of the day.
