The Hungarian men's national ice hockey team has participated in the IIHF European Championships, the IIHF World Hockey Championships and the Olympic Games. They are currently ranked 20th in the world by the IIHF. It is controlled by the Magyar Jégkorong Szövetség. There are no Hungarian players currently playing in North America's National Hockey League; however, three have been drafted to the league: Tamás Gröschl by the Edmonton Oilers, Levente Szuper by the Calgary Flames and János Vas by the Dallas Stars.

The Hungarian team won its group in the 2008 IIHF World Championship Division I, and therefore qualified to play in the Elite Division of the 2009 IIHF World Championship. This is the first time since 1939 that Hungary has qualified to play in the highest division of international hockey.
