Carlson Hockey Games, previously Kajotbet Hockey Games and Česká Pojišťovna Cup, is an annual ice hockey event held in Czech Republic. It is part of the Euro Hockey Tour.

The tournament started in 1994 as the Pragobanka Cup but with the new sponsor Česká pojišťovna it changed its name in 1998. In 2012 the tournament name was changed for two seasons as Kajotbet took over the sponsoring. In the 1997–98 season, the tournament joined the Euro Hockey Tour and the Slovak national team was replaced with the Finnish national team.

From its start in 1994 until 2009, the tournament was always played between August and September; however, from 2011, with the exception of the August 2013 tournament, it's played in April every year, except for Winter Olympics years, when the tournament is instead played in September the same year as the last tournament.

Until 2003 the tournament was played in Zlín at AC ZPS Zlín's (nowadays HC Zlín) home arena. It then moved to the Duhová Aréna in Pardubice and in 2005 to the Tipsport Arena in Liberec, northern Bohemia.
