History

The Slovenian Hockey league used to exist between 1991 and 2009, with the championship being held at the end as the playoffs. Over time some Slovenian teams entered the Austrian Hockey League, and joined in at the playoffs. In the 2007–08 season there was an issue, as a Croatian team, Medveščak, qualified for the play-offs. As the Slovenian Champion could only be a team from Slovenia, they did not take part in the play-offs. The following season, 2008–09, Medveščak played in the play-offs. In the case that they won the best Slovenian team would have been announced the Slovenian Champion and Medveščak would have been the league's champion. However, Medveščak was defeated in the play-offs.

The Slohokej League was established and played its first season in 2009–10, but was cancelled after the 2011–12 season.
