The British men's national ice hockey team (also known as Team GB) is the name of the national ice hockey Team for the United Kingdom. A founding member of the International Ice Hockey Federation in 1908, the team is controlled by Ice Hockey UK.

The current coach is Paul Thompson.

The team were a force in the game in the early 20th century, winning the first ever IIHF European Championship, Bronze medalists at the 1924 Winter Olympics in Chamonix, and became Olympic champions in 1936 in Germany.

However since then the GB team has made little impact on the sport.
