The 2013–14 HockeyAllsvenskan season began on 12 September 2013 and included 14 teams. IF Björklöven, Swedish champions in 1987, rejoined the league, following a three-year stint in Division 1 (now named Hockeyettan) after their near-bankruptcy in 2010. They replaced Tingsryds AIF, who were demoted to Division 1 following a third-place finish in the 2013 HockeyAllsvenskan qualifiers. Also new to the league were Timrå IK and Rögle BK, both of whom were demoted from Elitserien (now called the SHL), replacing Leksands IF and Örebro HK who were promoted up to the SHL in their stead.
Format[edit | edit source]
In the regular season, each team plays every other team twice at home and twice away, which gives each team a 52-game schedule. Following the regular season, the two teams with the worst records are forced to play a qualification tournament (Swedish: Kvalserien till HockeyAllsvenskan) to avoid demotion to Sweden's third-tier league, Division 1 (now named Hockeyettan). The teams that finished 4th–7th advanced to a double-round robin playoff series, the winner of which joined the top three teams in the SHL qualifiers, where they will have a chance to qualify for promotion to the Swedish Hockey League, in competition with the two teams with the worst records from the 2013–14 SHL season.
