The Greek National Team is the team featuring the best players from Greece.
Led by captain Dimitris Kalyvas, the team has faced extinction when the Greek government 13 years ago decided to cut funding in the ice hockey program. Kalyvas and the National Team stuck together, pooled their money to travel to Czech Republic when the last Greek arena closed and, in 2007, after the Greek government accepted to fund ice hockey via the Hellenic Ice Sports Federation, the team and the sport revived in the country. The International Ice Hockey Federation accepted to let the Greek team take part in the 2008 DIII World Championship Qualification held in Bosnia-and-Herzegovina. Greece won the qualification and earned the right to take part in the 2008 World Championship DIII in Luxembourg. Greece finished 4th and secured its place for the 2009 World Championship Division III.
