HV71 Dam is a Swedish professional ice hockey club based in Jönköping, who currently play in the Swedish Women's Hockey League (SDHL), the top-tier of women's hockey in Sweden.

History

The club was originally formed independently in March 2002 as Jönköpings IF Queens, after neither local men's SHL team HV71 nor Hockeyettan club HC Dalen were willing to start women's divisions.[1] The club's logo was designed by 18-year old Swedish-Iranian refugee Behnaz Bahabozorgi, who would serve as the club's chairperson, the club holding practices on an outdoor rink on Saturdays.[2] They began play in the 2003–04 Damettan season, finishing last in the southern division. In April 2008, as the team had grown to the point of adding a B-side and a youth side, the club merged with the HV71 organisation, becoming the HV71 Queens.

In 2012, the club earned promotion to the SDHL for the first time.[3] For their first top-division season, the club dropped the "Queens" from their name, playing only as HV71. They finished last place in the 2012–13 season, and were relegated back to Damettan. The club made it to the promotion playoffs in 2013–14, but lost. The following season, after the HV71 board decided to substantially increase investment into the women's side, more than doubling the club's budget and making big signings such as Jenni Asserholt and Fanny Rask, the team earned promotion back to the SDHL.[4] In 2016–17, the club was able to reach the SDHL playoff finals, but lost against Djurgårdens IF.

In the 2019–20 SDHL season, HV71 finished on top of the league table for the first time in club history, setting an SDHL record for most regular season points with 99.[5][6] They made the SDHL playoff finals for the second time in club history, but the playoffs were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Sweden.[7] Halfway through the season, head coach Lucas Frey had to retire after an accident in practice left him with severely impaired eyesight, being replaced by Djurgårdens IF assistant coach Joakim Engström.[8]
