The 1. národní hokejová liga (first national hockey league) is the second-level ice hockey league in the Czech Republic under the Extraliga. It began in 1993.


Format in 2008-09 season

In the first phase, every team plays each other twice, which makes for a 30 game section of the regular season. The thirty game phase will allow each team to play one home game against each team, which also allows every team to play one road game in every opposing team's arena. After the first thirty game phase, every team that ends on an even ranking (2, 4, 6, 8, etc.) will play each other and every team with an odd ranking (1, 3, 5, 7, etc.) will play each other. Like the first phase, each team will get a home game, which allows for eight home games and one road game against every team (eight total). At the end of this phase of the schedule, each team will have played 46 total games.

In the end of their 46 game regular season, the teams are seeded for the playoffs. All teams ranked fifth through twelfth will play a best of five preliminary round. The top four teams receive a bye and are directed seeded into the quarterfinal round, keeping their same regular season rank. The remaining rounds (quarterfinal, semifinal and final) are played as best of seven series. The winner of the Finals plays with last placed team of Extraliga in a best of seven series. The winner of this series is promoted to Extraliga for the following season.

Teams ranked thirteen through sixteen will continue to play. Every team plays each other four times, with the bottom two teams (ranked fifteen and sixteen) being directly relegated to the 2. Národní Hokejová Liga.

Three points are awarded for a win in regular time, and two points for an overtime victory, while the defeated team in overtime gets one point. If necessary, penalty shots are used to decide games after overtime.
