Djurgårdens IF Hockey is the ice hockey department of the Swedishmarker club Djurgårdens IF, based in Stockholmmarker. The club is the most successful team in Sweden, having won the Swedish Championships 16 times as well as producing many of Sweden's best players.

In addition to its 16 national championships, the team finished second eight times (1923, 1924, 1927, 1979, 1984, 1985, 1992, 1998) and were also European champions twice (1991 and 1992).

Club history

The department was formed in 1922 with the help of IK Göta player Wilhelm Arwe. During the first season, Djurgården's team consisted of only six players but was reinforced with five new players for the following season. The team managed to reach the final during this season against IK Göta, which proved to be too hard and Djurgården lost with 3-0 at Stockholms Stadionmarker. The procedure was repeated the next season and Djurgården had to wait until 1926 to finally lift the Le Mat-trophy for the first time.

In 1934 the department was dissolved due to lack of players and resources. Instead, the bandy department was prioritized and given the hockey department's resources.

The department was restarted in 1938 in the sixth division (Klass VI) and the team consisted of former players like Einar "Stor-Klas" Svensson and Gustaf "Lulle" Johansson. The team was able to get promoted to the fifth division the same season.Problems arose when the club tried to recruit new players. Those who where asked to join the team thought the inquiry was some kind of joke. However, the club managed to gather enough players to take part in the following season's matches. The plan for the coming seasons was to get promoted every year until the club reached the highest division again. Thus the 1940s consisted mainly on climbing in the league system.

Four former players won Olympic gold with the Sweden national team at Torino 2006. Most notable among them was Mats Sundin from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

For the 2007-08 season, they changed their official home ice from the Stockholm Globe Arenamarker to their smaller, former home arena, Hovetmarker. Nevertheless, a significant minority of the games was scheduled for the larger arena, just like some games were played on Hovet during the Globe era.

The most common nicknames for the team is "Järnkaminerna" (The Iron Stoves), "Stockholms stolthet" (The Pride of Stockholm) and "Mesta mästarna" (The Winners of Most Championships). Djurgården also has a supporters' club called Järnkaminerna, which it shares with the football department.
