2019-20 Euro Hockey Tour Schedule Released


The 2019-20 Euro Hockey Tour schedule has been revealed to follow a nearly identical cadence to the previous year, with Czechia, Russia, Finland and Sweden starting up this season’s tournament in November.

All four tournaments will return with the same structure as 2018-19, with nearly identical schedules in all four tournaments that act as the lead-up to the 2020 World Championship in Switzerland. As with last year, the Carlson Hockey Games will also act as the final leg of the 2020 Euro Hockey Challenge, with teams looking to gain valuable points to capture the Challenge title. Russia will look to repeat as Tour champions, while Czechia will look to repeat as Challenge champs, with both looking to challenge defending World Champions Finland.

The schedule for the 2019-20 Euro Hockey Tour is as follows:
