Östersunds IK is a Swedish hockey club from Östersund. The club was founded in 1965, and has played 21 seasons in Sweden's second-tier hockey league. In 2003, the club transferred its A-team to Jämtland Hockey, and played three years under that name while Östersunds IK was left with only its youth hockey programs. Then in 2006, Östersunds IK merged with Brunflo IK, and took over Jämtland Hockey's position in Division 1.[citation needed]

The club currently plays the Norra ("North") group of Division 1, the third tier of Swedish ice hockey.
