Luleå Hockey were founded in 1977 and have competed in the top tier of Swedish ice hockey since 1984. Widely known throughout Sweden as being the northernmost team in the league, the club were Champions of the SHL in 1995/96. They haven’t had a lot of domestic success since then, but this season they finished second in the regular season and made it all the way to the semi-finals of the Swedish playoffs.
Luleå Hockey won the title back in the Champion Hockey League’s inaugural 2014/15 season. Their championship run that season included a memorable comeback from a five-goal aggregate deficit to beat Red Bull Salzburg in the Round of 16 and another come back in the Final to beat the Frölunda Indians. They made it to the Quarter-Finals in 2015/16 but have failed since and even failed to qualify between 2017 and 2019, missing two full CHL seasons as a result. A second-place regular-season finish in 2019 secured the club their long-awaited return to the Champions Hockey League, and the 2015 champs went on to go as far as the Semi-Finals before letting an aggregate lead slip on home ice. This year, they ended the regular season of the SHL in first place and qualified for the CHL for the fifth time.
