2007 in Ice Hockey

The following is a chronicle of events during the year 2007 in ice hockey.

National Hockey League

Canadian Hockey League

International hockey

  • The Canadian and Russian junior teams met in the 2007 Super Series, an event designed to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. Like the 1972 series, four games each were played in Russia and in Canada. Unlike 1972, the tournament was wildly one-sided with Canada easily winning the series with a 7-0-1 record.[3]

European hockey

  • Elitserien: Modo captured the Swedish Elite League title.
  • SM-liiga: Kärpät won the Finnish national championship.

Women's Hockey

Although the National Women's Hockey League and Western Women's Hockey League had nominally merged prior to the season, the Western squads did not face off against the Eastern teams, and no unified champion was declared.

  • The Brampton Thunder defeated the Montreal Axion to win the NWHL championship, while the Calgary Oval X-Treme captured their third consecutive WWHL title, and fifth consecutive league championship overall.

Following the season, the NWHL announced that the Eastern and Central divisions had suspended operations, leaving only the Western Division operational in 2007–08.
