The 2012 Spengler Cup was held in Davos, Switzerland, between 26 and 31 December 2012. All matches were played at HC Davos's home known as Vaillant Arena. Six competing teams were split into two groups of three. The two groups, named Torriani and Cattini, were named after legendary Swiss hockey players Richard "Bibi" Torriani and the Cattini brothers, Hans and Ferdinand.

Teams participating[edit | edit source]

The list of teams that have been confirmed for the tournament are as listed:[1]

The division of the six teams into two groups of three and the subsequent schedule were determined on 24 August 2012.[2]

Due to the ongoing 2012–13 NHL lockout, some of the teams' rosters were bolstered by the presence of locked-out NHL players, with many of them joining Team Canada.[3]
