The 2012 Oddset Hockey Games was played between 9–12 February 2012. The Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden and Russia played a round-robin for a total of three games per team and six games in total. Five of the matches were played in the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, and one match in the Helsinki Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland. Sweden won the tournament for the second year in a row, after defeating Finland 3–1 on the last game day. The tournament was part of Euro Hockey Tour 2011–12.

Prior to this year, Sweden Hockey Games was named LG Hockey Games because the tournament was sponsored by LG Electronics. However, after LG decided to drop out their sponsoring, Oddset, a gambling game by Svenska Spel, took over and effectively renamed the tournament to Oddset Hockey Games.[1][2]
