Organization

The league counts the 12 best Swedish clubs, who face each other in a 55 games regular season (50 before the 2006-07 season) - the regular season calandar counts either 27 home games and 26 away or the opposite, depending on the teams. In case of a tie following the 60 minutes of regular time, a 5 minutes sudden death is added to make a winner. The points system goes as follows:

  • 3 points for a win in regular time
  • 2 points for an overtime win
  • 1 point for a tie or an overtime loss
  • 0 points for a loss in regular time
  • The winning team is awarded a bonus of 50 000 kronor.

Playoffs

The playoffs begin right after the regular season is over. The eight best teams compete for the obtention of the SM-guld, the championship's gold medal. Since a few years, the playoffs are of the best of 7 format, where a team has to win four games in order to advance to the next round. The champion team of the regular season gets the home ice advantage in every decisive game of the series. Färjestads BK is the team with the most SM-guld, with 7; however, Djurgårdens IF has 12 league championships.

Teams ranked 9 and 10 don't take part in any other post-season tournament; those ranked 11 and 12 are engaged in the Kvalserien, a playout tournament with the two best Allsvenskan teams to decide of their staying in the Elitserien or demotion to Allsvenskan.
