AIK Hockey (often referred as just AIK) is a Swedish ice hockey club based in Solna, Stockholm. AIK was founded in Stockholm in 1891, and the hockey department was formed in 1921. The club relocated to Solna in 1937, but the ice hockey team always plays their matches in Stockholm, mainly at Hovet, but the more popular games are usually played at Ericsson Globe, which has a larger capacity of 14,119. AIK are currently playing in HockeyAllsvenskan, the second highest league in Sweden.

In November, 2009 Kontinental Hockey League and AIK Hockey club signed the document announcing the invitation from KHL to AIK Hockey club to become member of the KHL, and join the League’s Championship beginning from the 2010-2011 season provided AIK observes all the terms and conditions, and meets all KHL admission criteria.[1]

History

AIK is an abbreviation for "Allmänna Idrottsklubben", which in direct translation means "The general sports club". The name was chosen to indicate that the club was open for everyone and also that one of the main events was to be athletics, at that time called "allmän idrott" in Swedish.

In the club's 86-year history, AIK has played 66 seasons in Sweden's top league. They have won the Swedish championship seven times (1934, 1935, 1938, 1946, 1947, 1982, 1984) and been runner-up six other times (1930, 1936, 1940, 1968, 1978, 1981).
