The 2013 European Trophy was the fourth European Trophy, an annually held European ice hockey tournament. It was also the eighth tournament since its predecessor, the Nordic Trophy, was launched in 2006. The regulation round began on 6 August 2013 with the South Division game between Piráti ChomutovSparta Praha, and ended on 8 September 2013.[1] The playoffs were played between 19–22 December 2013 in Berlin.[2] The preliminary schedule for the regulation round was released on 15 April 2013.[3]

JYP won the tournament, defeating Färjestad BK in the final 2–1. Like last year's tournament, the same 32 teams participated in the tournament, marking the first time since 2007 that the teams remained the same from last year. For the first time in tournament history, Eisbären Berlin hosted the playoffs, the Red Bulls Salute. It marked the first time that the playoffs were hosted in a single city, as well as the first time that the playoffs weren't hosted in Austria.

Tournament format[edit]

The 32 teams in the tournament were, partly based on geographical location, divided into four divisions: the West Division, the North Division, the South Division, and the East Division. Each division consisted of 8 teams who played a round-robin in their division, with an extra game against a local rival in their division, giving a total of 8 games per team. Each team was assigned four home games as well as four road games. The match-ups were nearly identical to last year, the only difference being that the home–away team assignings were switched for each game. Six teams qualified for the playoffs: Eisbären Berlin (as host), the winner of each division, and the best 2nd-placed team of all four divisions.[4]

If at least two teams in the same division or at least two 2nd-placed teams ended up tied in points, the following tie-breaker format was used:[4]

  1. Best goal difference
  2. Most goals scored in total (goals for)
  3. Results in games against the tied teams
  4. Drawing of lots

Playing format[edit]

If a game was tied after regulation time (60 minutes), a 5-minute overtime period was played. During overtime, both teams substitute only 4 players on the ice at once (except for 3 when either of the teams has a penalized player). If no team scores during the overtime period, a shootout was played, starting with three penalty shots for both teams. If the shootout remains tied after the first three rounds, sudden death rounds were played until a winning team has been determined.

In the regulation round games, the teams get three points for a regulation-time victory, two points for an overtime/shootout win, one point for losing in overtime/shootout, and zero points for a regulation loss.

Prize money[edit]

After the regulation round, the four division winners receive 25 000 each, the four second-placed teams €20 000, and the third, fourth and fifth team of each division receive €15 000, €10 000, and €5 000, respectively. Additionally, in the Red Bulls Salute, the winning team receives €50 000, while the team finishing second gets €10 000. In total, €360 000 was given out during the entire tournament.[5]
