2006–07 DEL season

2006–07 DEL season

The 2006–07 Deutsche Eishockey Liga season was the 13th season since the founding of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL; English: German Ice Hockey League). The league was played with 14 clubs in the 2006–07 season, the same number as the previous season. However, in place of the Kassel Huskies, who were relegated the previous season, the Straubing Tigers took part in the competition, having won the 2nd Bundesliga in 2005–06. The format had slightly changed from the previous season. Each club played the other four times, resulting in 52 regular-season games per club. The top six clubs at the end of the regular season qualified for the first round of the play-offs. The clubs seven to ten played a preliminary round to determine the last two places for the first round. For the teams placed eleven to fourteen, the season ended.

No club was relegated from the DEL this season and the Adler Mannheim (English: Eagles Mannheim) won its 5th DEL Championship.
