Oddset Hockey Games

Oddset Hockey Games (OHG), formerly named LG Hockey Games between 2006–2011 and Sweden Hockey Games between 1991–2005, is an annual ice hockey tournament held in Sweden.

Since season 1996–97, the tournament is part of the Euro Hockey Tour in which the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia and Sweden participate. The Sweden Hockey Games tournament has changed name a couple of times: the tournament started in 1991 as Sweden Hockey Games, and in 2006 the name changed to LG Hockey Games as LG Electronics started sponsoring the tournament. In 2012 however, LG dropped out their sponsoring, and Svenska Spel's gambling game Oddset took over, effectively changing the tournament's name to Oddset Hockey Games.[1]

The event is mainly held in the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, although a few games may exclusively be hosted in other countries. The winner of the tournament receives the Globen Cup – the tournament is sometimes called the Sweden Globen Cup. Only the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia and Sweden are invited to the tournament but from season 1991–92 through 2003–04 Canada also participated.
