The regular season of the elite German hockey championship started in mid-September 2022 and should end in early March 2023. During this time, 15 participants of the tournament will play 60 matches. Then the strongest six will advance to the quarterfinal stage of the playoffs, and the clubs from seventh to tenth place will play in 1/8. The two teams with the fewest points will go down in class.

The list of top contenders for the championship includes the following teams: Red Bull Munich, Eisberen Berlin, Adler Mannheim and Grizzlies Wolfsburg. All teams are competitive and it will be very interesting to follow the current season of the DEL league.
Red Bull Munich
Wards Don Jackson look great in the regular season. After a third of the regular season, the Munich club got 14 wins and lost six times. It should be noted that in regular time the Black-White-Red-Yellows lost only four times. By the 20th round, Red Bull Munich had the strongest attack in the league, throwing three and a half goals in 60 minutes of playing time. At the same time, the Red Bulls did not differ in reliability in defense.
The team from Munich has a strong line-up of mainly German players. However, the “black-white-red-yellow” also have five skillful players from across the ocean. In general, Patrick Hager and partners look competitive and have a good chance of winning the fourth league title in team history.
The team of Serge Aubin performs disgustingly in the regular season. After 18 matches played in the standings, the capital team was only in 13th place. The “dark blue-red-whites” were five points ahead of the relegation zone, and ten points behind the strongest six. Having won seven times, the “polar bears” lost in 11 cases, and nine losses were within three periods. Having a strong squad and good defense, Eisberen Berlin is extremely insecure in defense.
The backlog of the “polar bears” from the top ten is not too impressive. So the Berlin club is able to get into the 1/8 finals of the playoffs. However, given the results of the “dark blue-red-white” in the current season, the team is unlikely to be able to go far in the relegation battles.
The guys of Bill Stewart looked quite confident in the regular season and after 19 games played they were in the top three. At the same time, Adler Mannheim was inferior to the second Ingolstadt only in additional indicators. The eight-time German champion rarely reveals the winner of the pair outside of normal time. After a third of the regular championship, more than half of the Eagles’ matches were won within three periods.
The first two lines of the Mannheim team are made up entirely of Germans, while the third is played by Nigel Dawes, Jordan Schwartz, Matt Donovan and Borna Rendulic. All of these performers have NHL experience. So the Eagles may well aim for gold medals.
Mikael Stewart’s guys are extremely unstable. After 19 matches played, they were on the eighth line in the tournament and two points behind the strongest six. However, Grizzlies Wolfsburg won less often than they lost. For example, in the first three matches of the November segment, the Orange-and-Blacks lost in overtime to Dusseldorf, on shootouts to Frankfurt Leuven and in regular time to Bremerhaven.
An uncertain game is unlikely to prevent the Wolfsburg team from dropping below the tenth line. But the Orange-and-Blacks will not be able to achieve serious success in the playoffs.
Grizzlies Wolfsburg and Eisbeeren Berlin are unlikely to even qualify for the semi-finals. At the same time, the fight for gold medals should be between Red Bull Munich and Adler Mannheim. Most likely, the Eagles will take the title, and the Red Bulls will reach the final at most.
