History[edit]

HC Davos was founded in 1921 and was quite successful, dominating the Eastern Swiss championship for over three decades from 1926 to 1960. However, the team was relegated into 1. Liga in 1990, one of the lowest points in its history. After a new beginning, the club moved into Nationalliga B, and two years later returned to the NLA. Davos has been among the best teams in the league since, with recent league championships in 2002, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011.

In 1923, Davos presented the first Spengler Cup, one of the oldest tournaments in sports still being played. As the local team, Davos plays in this tournament as well, although they are usually strengthened by players from Class A clubs.
