Västerviks IK is a Swedish ice hockey club, based in Västervik. The club, founded in 1971, had spent decades yo-yoing between the third and fourth tiers of Swedish ice hockey, Division 1 and Division 2, before securing promotion on March 31, 2016, to HockeyAllsvenskan (second tier) for the 2016–17 season.

The club almost reached the Swedish Elite League Kvalserien during the 1996-1997 season.[1]
