The Mongolian national ice hockey team is the national ice hockey team of Mongolia, and is controlled by the Mongolian Hockey Federation, a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation.

The Mongolian National Ice Hockey team didn't participate in any IIHF tournaments until the 2007 IIHF World Championship Division III tournament. 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 tournament 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, the Mongolians chose to forfeit the games and withdraw from the tournament. All of the games were marked as 5–0 losses 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. They then lost to South Africa (12–1) and to Armenia (15–0). Goal margin was 2 to 49. 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.
