The Argentine national ice hockey team (Spanish: Selección de hockey sobre hielo de Argentina) is the national men's ice hockey team of Argentina. They are controlled by the Argentine Association of Ice and In-Line Hockey, an associate member of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF).[1]

History[edit]

The Argentina men's national ice hockey team played its first game in February 2012 against Mexico in an exhibition game in Cuautitlán Izcalli, Mexico.[2] Argentina lost the game 1–5. The following day they played their second of two exhibition matches against Mexico national team and suffered a wider loss of 1–10.[2]

Argentina has participated in all four editions of the Pan American Ice Hockey Tournament.

In the 2014 Pan American Ice Hockey Tournament, they recorded their first ever victory defeating Brazil by a score of 5–3, before finishing fourth after losing to Colombia in the bronze medal game 9–1.

After disappointing performances in the 2015 and 2016 editions of the tournament, in which the team recorded no victories, Argentina obtained its first ever international ice hockey medal in the 2017 edition. Argentina recorded the tournament's biggest ever win with a 26–0 score against Chile, before defeating Mexico's U23 squad 6–1 in the bronze medal match.
