Luleå Hockey/MSSK is a Swedish professional ice hockey team based in Luleå, in northern Sweden. They currently play in the Swedish Women's Hockey League (SDHL), the top-tier of women's ice hockey in Sweden. They are the most successful club in SDHL history, having been regular season champions for four consecutive years, 2015–2019, and winning the Swedish Championship three times in four years, 2016 to 2019.

History

The team was formed in 2015, after a merger between Luleå HF and Munksund Skuthamn SK (MSSK).

After winning the Swedish Championship in 2018, they played against that year's Isobel Cup winners, the Metropolitan Riveters of the NWHL, in the first-ever Champions Cup for women's hockey.[1] Luleå won the match 4-2.[2]

In 2019, the club hired Mikael Forsberg to replace Fredrik Glader, who had served as head coach for the first four seasons of the club's existence.[3]
