The seven-time Finnish champion
IFK Helsinki joins the field from Finland. The seven-time champions finished last year's qualification in 5th place in the Liiga and only narrowly failed in a "Belle" in the playoff quarterfinals. In the group stage of the Champions Hockey League, the capitals showed their class, among other things, with a clear victory in the Hallenstadion against the ZSC Lions. After 1994, 1995 and 2004, it will be the fourth appearance of the Finns at the Spengler Cup.
