The United States men's national ice hockey team is the national team for the United Statesmarker, based in Ann Arbor, Michiganmarker. The team is controlled by USA Hockey. Because of the United States performance in the 2009 Worlds (4th place), the team moved up one spot passing Czech Republic to 5th in the IIHF World Rankings. The United States won the silver medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics, and the gold medal at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. Their most recent medal at the World Championships came in 2004 with a bronze and they won the tournament in 1960 and 1933. At the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, the U.S. was unable to defend its title, losing to Finlandmarker in the semi-finals. Most recently, the team finished sixth in the 2008 IIHF World Championship. Their current head coach is Ron Wilson. As of 2007, the United States has a total of 457,038 registered ice hockey players (0.16% of its population).

The American ice hockey team's greatest success was the "Miracle on Ice" at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placidmarker, when they defeated the heavily favored Soviet Union on the way to a gold medal. Though hockey is not a universally popular sport in the United States, the "Miracle" is often listed as one of the greatest achievements in the history of American sports.

U.S. hockey had a spike in talent in the 1990s with top NHL stars like Brett Hull, Jeremy Roenick, Mike Richter, Brian Leetch and Mike Modano and as a result, the team won the 1996 World Cup and earned a silver medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics. But by 2006, many of these All-Stars had retired or lost their skill with age. Though the 2006 Olympic Team finished a disappointing 8th place, it was more of a transitional team, featuring young NHL players like Rick DiPietro, Jordan Leopold and John-Michael Liles, and other young talents like Patrick Kane, Dustin Brown, Zach Parise, Phil Kessel and Ryan Miller already have hockey analysts listing the United States as a potential medal contender for 2010.
