Notes[edit]

The "Playoff appearances" column tells exactly how many times a particular team has qualified for the quarterfinals. The "Cur. SHL" column indicates whether the team plays in the SHL as of the 2014–15 season; a green box indicates that the team plays in the 2014–15 SHL season.

Point average is the average amount of points per season; that is, the total amount of points divided by the number of seasons. Point percentage is the total amount of points divided by the total amount of possible points. Winning percentage is the percentage of wins; it's determined by dividing the total amount of wins by the total amount of games played. Both the point averages, the winning percentages and the point percentages are rounded to one decimal.

Newer SHL teams record higher point averages, due to the fact that the league has only been using the 3-point system (that is, 3 points for a regulation-time win) since the 1998–99 season, as well as the fact that only 36–40 games were played until the 1996–97 season. Since the 1996–97 season, each season consists of at least 50 games (55 games since the 2006–07 season). Before the 1998–99 season, the teams received two points for each win instead of three. Also, from the 1987–88 season until the 1996–97 season, the two worst teams after the first 22 games were relegated to Allsvenskan; the remaining teams played another 18 games. For these reasons, point percentage is a more accurate way of determining each team's overall performance in the regular season. Currently it's possible to get 165 points in one season, due to the 3-point system and the 55-game schedule.

Regarding the winning percentages, note that, due to the former 2-point system, overtime or shootout wins also counted as wins from the 1975–76 season through the 1997–98 season. Since the 1998–99 season, when the 3-point system was introduced, only regulation-time wins count as wins.
