The 2006 Men's Ice Hockey Championships was held in May 2006 in Rigamarker, Latviamarker.It was the 70th annual event, and was run by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF).

One of the requirements of the IIHF for Latvia to host the event was that a new arena would be constructed. Swedenmarker was the stand-by organizer in case the arena was delayed, but the construction was completed on schedule, marking the first time a former Sovietmarker state apart from Russiamarker has hosted the event. The mascot of the championships was a beaver called RIX (after Riga International Airportmarker's IATA code.)

It was preceded two months earlier by the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turinmarker, Italymarker, where ice hockey was also a major event.

In the gold medal game, Sweden won against the Czech Republic and thus became the first hockey team to win both the Winter Olympics and the World Championships in the same year.
