SHL seasons
2013-14

The 2014-15 SHL season was the 40th season of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). The regular season began on 10 September 2014 and ended on 5 March 2015. The following playoffs began on 12 March and ended on 23 April 2015.

Skellefteå AIK won the regular season for the third consecutive season. Växjö Lakers won the Swedish Championship title by defeating Skellefteå in six games in a series where none of the two teams won at home until Växjö in game six. The title was Växjö's first in only their second play-off appearance.

Modo Hockey and Leksands IF were forced to play in the Direktkval till SHL to defend their SHL status. Modo swept the series against HC Vita Hästen while Leksand lost to Malmö Redhawks over seven games. Therefore Malmö were promoted to the SHL on the expense of Leksand.

Pre-season

On 29 April 2014, the Swedish Sports Confederation (RF) informed that Modo Hockey player Edwin Hedberg had tested positive for the banned substance sibutramine in February.[2][3] Hedberg voluntarily suspended himself for the duration of the investigation.[3] On 9 July 2014, the RF handed Hedberg a six-month suspension from all organised sporting activity; the suspension ended on 24 October 2014.[4]

On 7 July 2014, the RF suspended Luleå HF goaltender Mark Owuya from all sporting activity for one year.[5][6][7][8] The verdict came due to an incident in February, in which Owuya disappeared without supervision during out-of-competition testing for doping.[5][7] Owuya would have missed the entire 2014-15 season as a result, but appealed the decision to the top instance of the RF on 28 July 2014.[9] On 4 September 2014, the instance decided to lift the suspension.[10]
