The Cornell Big Red men's ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I college ice hockey program that represents Cornell University. Cornell competes in the ECAC Hockey conference and plays its home games at Lynah Rink in Ithaca, New York. Six of the eight Ivy League schools sponsor men's hockey and all six teams play in the twelve-team ECAC. The Ivy League crowns a champion based on the results of the games played between its members during the ECAC season.

Cornell has won the ECAC Tournament Championship a record 12 times and has won the Ivy League Title 22 times, second to Harvard's 24.

The 1970 Cornell Hockey team, coached by Ned Harkness was the first (and currently only team) in NCAA hockey history to win a national title while being undefeated and untied with a perfect 29-0-0 record.[1]

The Big Red's archrival is the Harvard Crimson. The teams meet at least twice each season for installments of the historic Cornell-Harvard hockey rivalry.
