Abstract: Dark Matter could be detected indirectly through the observation of neutrinos produced in self-annihilations or decays. Searches for such neutrino signals have resulted in the most stringent constraints on the lifetime of superheavy dark matter and world bests limits on spin-dependent scattering with matter. In recent years these searches have made significant progress in sensitivity through new search methodologies, new detection channels, and through the availability of rich datasets, foremost from the IceCube Neutrino Telescope. In this talk I will introduce the IceCube Neutrino Telescope and review dark matter searches. I will focus in particular on recent experimental progress and discuss the dark matter discovery potential for next-generation neutrino detectors.
