Ice hockey at the Winter Olympics
February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - The 2022 winter Olympic Games, officially known as the XXIV Olympic Winter Games, take place in Beijing, China.
Olympic ice hockey will take place at the Beijing National Indoor Stadium, with some matches also being played at the Wukesong Arena. Both venues were constructed for the 2008 Summer Olympics.
