The Netherlands are currently ranked 24th in the IIHF World Ranking and currently compete in IIHF World Championship Division I.

The Netherlands competed in the 1980 Olympic ice hockey competition. They then competed in Pool A of the 1981 World Ice Hockey Championships.

In the 1980 Winter Olympics, The Netherlands, competed in the Red division group, and had a record of 1-3-1. They lost to Canada (10-1), they lost to the Soviet Union (17-4), they tied Japan (3-3), they beat Poland (5-3), and they lost to Finland (10-3).
