Deutsche Eishockey-Liga (German Hockey League, shortname DEL) is a German high-calibre ice hockey league, and has the highest number of American and Canadian players overseas. It was formed as a replacement for the ice hockey Bundesliga.

History

Establishment

The DEL is based, in the 1994/95 season, from the remaining teams in the Ice hockey Bundesliga's 1st and 2nd division . The condition of this earlier league had become intolerable: many of the 1st and 2nd division teams were heavily in debt, while in the 2nd division attracted few sponsors and spectators; thus why many teams went bankrupt or did without on a play right into the 2nd division. For this reason, in the last Bundesliga season, 1993/94, only 11 teams wanted to play in the 2nd division. Furthermore, two teams gave up, during the season, and after season's end. The goal behind the DEL was to create a league, based on the model of the North American NHL, in which the teams could keep house consistently without relegation concerns. The associations formed own finance companies, the master associations were only responsible for the new generation work.


1994/95: The 1st Season

Into the first season 1994/95 started with 18 teams, of it 12 from the old 1. Bundesliga, 6 from the 2. Bundesliga.


The Season

Additionally in the point round the 18 teams played a supraregional single round (everyone against everyone) and in regional groups a second single round, so that each team up to the Playoffs should come on 44 point plays. In the connection the Playoff round of the last sixteen in the mode Best of Seven took place . (the following quarters -, half and final were played in the mode Best of Five.) Hope to be able to avoid over a stricter Lizenzierung cancellations did not come up in the first season. Calculated the last federal league master EC Hedos Munich (in the meantime renamed in Maddogs Munich) had lived 18,12,1994 in the previous years clearly over its conditions and got over the season nicht:Am made the Maddogs Munich in Nuernberg their last point play. The not delivered plays were rated with 0:0 and 1 point and painted Munich from the table. The consequence of this cancellation was that except a crew all could participate in the Playoffs and thus frequently the tension was missing to the point plays and the spectator numbers sank accordingly. Outside of ice the season was overshadowed by discussions between the league and the German ice hockey federation.
