EV Zug is a professional men's ice hockey team from Zug, Switzerland. It is a member of National League A and plays its home games at Bossard Arena.

History[edit]

EV Zug won its lone championship in the 1997–98 season.

On October 3, 2011, the club defeated the New York Rangers of the NHL by the wild score of 8-4 in an exhibition game.[1][2] Former NHLer Josh Holden, who at the time was suspended from the NLA, was permitted to play and scored twice. He and Fabian Schnyder each had three points and Esa Pirnes also had two goals. Former Ranger goaltender Jussi Markkanen had the win in net in front of a sellout crowd at Bossard Arena.
