Neuberg Highlanders Announce 2012-13 Schedule

The Neuberg Highlanders announced the 2012-13 game schedule for the Damen Eishockey Bundesliga (DEBL) on August 22.  We open the season with an away game against Slovenia's HK Triglav Kranj on Sept. 30 at Eishalle Triglav.  The expected start of the match is yet to be determined.

The Bundesliga consists of eight teams for the 2012-13 season, with the addition of two teams (EC "Die Adler" Kitzbühel and KHL Gric Zagreb) which were not members of the league last year.

Damen Eishockey Bundesliga (DEBL) Teams

  1. Neuberg Highlanders
  2. EHV Sabres Wien
  3. HK Triglav Kranj
  4. HDK Maribor
  5. Gipsy Girls Villach
  6. DEC Dragens Klagenfurt
  7. EC "Die Adler" Kitzbühel
  8. KHL Gric Zagreb

Every team in the league will play each team twice, one game at home and one game away.  As there are no playoffs for the league, the Bundesliga champion will be decided based on the amount of points each team earns throughout the season.  For each match, the winning team will receive three points while the losing team receives zero.  Similar to the National Hockey League (NHL), there also must be a winner for each game in the Bundesliga.  If a game is tied at the end of regulation time (three 20-minute periods), both teams will receive one point each and will play in a sudden-death overtime period.  If the score remains even, the game will continue and end in a shootout to determine an ultimate winner, who will then receive an additional point.  The team with the most points at the end of the season will be declared the Bundesligameister, or Bundesliga champion.  As the reigning Bundesliga champions, the Neuberg Highlanders look to reclaim the throne for a second consecutive year, as we finished with 31 points and an overall 10-2 record for the 2011-12 season.
