The Mongolian national ice hockey team (Mongolian: Монголын хоккейн үндэсний шигшээ баг) is the national ice hockey team of Mongolia. It is controlled by the Mongolian Hockey Federation and a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation.

History[edit]

Mongolia made its debut at the 1999 Asian Winter Games. The national team did not participate in any IIHF tournaments until the 2007 IIHF World Championship Division III in Ireland. They played four games, losing all four by a combined margin of 3 goals for to 45 goals against. In 2008, Mongolia played at the IIHF World Championship Division III in Luxembourg, and again they lost all of their games. Goal margin was 11 goals for and 59 against in five games. In the 2009 tournament, they chose to forfeit the games and withdrew from the tournament. All of the games were marked as 5–0 forfeit towards the team. In 2010, the team was placed in group B of Division III. They started off the tournament against North Korea, and they lost (22–1). Then they lost to South Africa (12–1) and to Armenia (15–0). Goal margin was 2 goals and 49 against. They finished the tournament with a 3rd place rematch against South Africa. Mongolia scored 3 times but it was not enough as South Africa won 8–3. Mongolia however finished the tournament with its first-ever podium position, finishing third overall in the group after Armenia was suspended by the IIHF.

Mongolia is currently ranked 50th in the IIHF World Rankings but they are unable to compete until they meet their minimum participation standards.

Many players also represent the Mongolia national bandy team. Baasandavaa Choijiljav was the first President of the Bandy Federation of Mongolia.

Withdrawal from 2011 IIHF tournaments[edit]

The Mongolian Hockey Federation announced that their men's and U18 teams would not be participating in the 2011 IIHF tournaments due to financial trouble and lack of ice hockey equipment. Mongolia cancelled their trips to their respective tournaments. Mongolia men's team was scheduled to travel to Cape Town, South Africa to participate in Division III, while the U18 team was scheduled to participate in Division III in Taipei City, Taiwan.
