The 1967–68 Canada men's national ice hockey team represented Canada and won the bronze medal at the 1968 Winter Olympics held in Grenoble, France. This tournament also counted as the IIHF World Championships and the IIHF European Championships. The matches were played at the Palais des Sports.

This was the last men's ice hockey team to compete for Canada at the Olympics until the 1980 Winter Olympics held at in Lake Placid.

History[edit]

In 1965 a permanent national team was established in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The team was coached by Jackie MacLeod and managed by Father David Bauer.

Due to disagreements with the IIHF over the use of professional athletes at world championships, Canada completely withdrew from international amateur hockey and did not send teams to the 1972 or 1976 Winter Olympics.[1]
