Legia Warszawa is an ice hockey team in Warsaw, Poland. Formerly a top-level team in the country, they most recently played in the second-level of Polish hockey, the Polish 1. Liga. The team did not participate in the 2015/16 season, and has temporarily suspended operations due to financial constraints.

The club was founded in 1927. They won fourteen Polska Liga Hokejowa titles from 1933–1967. Between 1982-2005, the club was liquidated, and returned to I liga in 2006. The team has remained in the second-level since.
