Can you hear it? Those are the fairies telling us that there is a new hockey year on the rise. While the Dallas Stars and the Tampa Bay Lightning face off in a battle between the fabulous hockey states of Texas and Florida, Sweden is set to start up the SHL again.
Premiering Saturday, 14 teams will play 52 games each before being divided into different kinds of play-ins/playoffs to eventually crown one winner and, potentially, demote two relegated teams. Eyes On The Prize’s two in-house Swedes have done their homework, and preview the teams in random order.
