Teams 2023

For 100 years the object of desire - the Cup!

Four participants of the 95th Spengler Cup are already known. And they are once again top-class. Host HC Davos, defending champion HC Ambrì-Piotta, the Swedish SHL team Frölunda HC and the record winner Team Canada will play in the anniversary tournament. Two more participants from top European leagues will join them in the coming weeks.



The first Finnish Spengler Cup champion KalPa Kuopio, which won the tournament in 2018, is the sixth participant at the 95th Spengler Cup in 2023.


HC Dynamo Pardubice

Pardubice has been one of the best teams in the Czech Republic for years. For the six-time national champion it will be the third Spengler Cup participation.

Frölunda HC

It’s happening this time – välkommen Frölunda HC. The team from Gothenburg was scheduled to participate in 2021, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic the tournament was canceled.

HC Ambri-Piotta

The Leventines are a guarantee for atmosphere. They caused a sensation by winning the tournament last year. In 2023, they will be competing to defend the title.

HC Davos

In 2022, the host was in the semifinals, which is not a matter of course. Nevertheless, the last title dates back to 2011.

Team Canada

The Canadians became the sole Spengler Cup record winner in 2019 with their 16th Spengler Cup triumph. 2022 was not their year. Will title number 17 follow this year?
