The Norwegian men's national junior ice hockey team is the national junior ice hockey team in Norway. The team represents Norway at the International Ice Hockey Federation's IIHF World U20 Championship.

In 1979, Norway participated at the Pool A level in Karlstad, Sweden. However, Norway managed only 2 goals in their first appearance. Norway did not return to Pool A until 1983, staying until 1991. Norway would have to wait 15 years to reappear at the top level. In the 2006 World Junior Hockey Championships in Vancouver, Norway lost 11–2 to the United States and 4–0 in a hard fought game to Canada. Near the end of that game, frustrations boiled over as Norway and Canada nearly engaged in a brawl.
