Thought I'll give some information about BIF 1912 as it has been known here on HFboards.

Brynäs IF is one of the most legendary clubs in Sweden. Founded in 1912 in Gävle as a bandy, waterpolo, athletcs, swimming and football organisation. They cut Bandy in favour of hockey in 1939.

They made their debut in the highest division in 1943 as the first team outside of Mälardalen (a region surrounding Stockholm)

They've been swedish champs 13 times (1964, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1976, 1977, 1980, 1993, 1999, 2012) and 54 seasons in the highest division.

Players of the club in the ATD are: Rafalski, Svedberg, Kimmo Timonen, Mats Näslund, Chris Phillips, Börje Salming and Tomas Sandström.
