The Soviet Union won its sixth gold medal, tying Canada for most in Olympic ice hockey at that point (Canada won its ninth in 2014). Games were held mostly in the arena portion of the Olympic Hall Zetra, with some played in the arena portion of the Skenderija Olympic Hall.

The IIHF did not run a championship in Olympic years at this time. Nations that did not participate in the Sarejevo Olympics were invited to compete in the Thayer Tutt Trophy.
