The 2010–11 Michigan Wolverines men's ice hockey team was the Wolverines' 89th season. They represented the University of Michigan in the 2010–11 NCAA Division I men's ice hockey season. The team was coached by Red Berenson and played their home games at Yost Ice Arena, although they took one regular-season home game against archrival Michigan State to Michigan Stadium, drawing the largest crowd in the sport's history. The team earned the 2010–11 Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) regular season championship and advanced to the Frozen Four of the 2011 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament. Following the CCHA season, the team announced that they intended to move from the CCHA to the newly formed Big Ten Conference Hockey League in 2013.
The team won the regular season title for the CCHA with a 20-7-1 record. Following the regular season, Senior left wing Carl Hagelin was voted the CCHA's Best Defensive Forward and senior goaltender Shawn Hunwick earned the league's Best Goaltender award. Hagelin was selected as first team All-Conference, while defenceman Jon Merrill was second team All-Conference and All-Rookie. Subsequently, the Big Ten Conference announced that with Penn State's ascension to Division I varsity team status, the conference would recommend that men's hockey become an official conference sport for the 2013–14 NCAA Division I men's ice hockey season with six teams including Michigan.
