The Norwegian men's national ice hockey team (or Team Norway) is the national ice hockey team from Norway that participates at the IIHF World Championships for both men and women. The teams are governed by the Norwegian Ice Hockey Federation. The men's team is coached by Mr. Roy Johansen and the women's team is coached by former men's national team and San Jose Sharks head coach Mr. George Kingston.


Norway has competed nine times in the Olympics: the country's best performance was seen in Sapporo Olympics in 1972, where the team finished 8th.


The first ice hockey games in Norway were played in the northern part of the country in the late 1920's. The first hockey clubs were established in 1932, and the first national championship was competed for in 1934-35. Norwegian Ice Hockey Association was founded in 1934 and a year later, the country joined the International Ice Hockey Federation.
