FormatRound-robin tournament.

The Canadians were represented by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Flyers, but controversy enveloped this tournament over the eligibility of the American team. Two teams attempted to compete for the United States, one representing the American Hockey Association of the United States (AHAUS) and one representing the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). The USOC wanted the AAU team to compete, but the AHAUS team was affiliated with the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), while the AAU team was not. The IIHF threatened to withdraw ice hockey from the Winter Olympics if the AHAUS team was not allowed to compete. Eventually, they did compete and initially finished fourth. However, they were later disqualified and their finish was not counted in the final standings. Because of the controversy, the IOC originally announced that the 1948 ice hockey results would be unofficial, but they reversed this decision during the Olympic tournament.

The tournament was a nine-team round robin. Canada played eight games, winning seven, and skating to a scoreless tie against Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia also won seven games and the two teams finished with equal records of 7 wins and 1 tie. The gold medal was decided on goal margin, Canada outscoring their opponents 69-5 (+64), while Czechoslovakia had a margin of “only” +62 (80-18).
