Playoffs[edit]

The EC Red Bull Salzburg team won the season, after beating the EC KAC 4-3 in the final series. Game 7 ended with an exciting overtime goal by the Red Bulls, giving them the league championship for the second year in a row, with a final game score of 3-2.

After the regular season, the standard of 8 teams qualified for the playoffs. In the playoff games the better placed team at the end of the regular season will have the right to play at home first. In the quarterfinals the 1st ranked team will play against the 8th ranked team, 2nd vs 7th, 3rd vs 6th, 4th vs 5th - each in a best-of-seven series.

In the semifinals the four winners of the quarterfinals will play as follows: the best ranked club (in the regular season) of the four semifinalists will play against the worst ranked club, the second best ranked club against the second worst ranked club - each in a best-of-seven series. The two winners of the semifinals will play a best-of-seven series in the final round.

If a playoff game is undecided at the end of the regular time after a 17 minutes break a 20 minute "Sudden Victory Overtime" will be played. Should the game still be undecided after the first overtime period after another 17 minutes break a second 20 minute "Sudden Victory Overtime" will be played and so on until the deciding goal is scored. Each team may only use four skaters; however, at least three skaters must be used.
