HistoryEdit

Storhamar saw its early beginnings in the wake of the 1952 Winter Olympics, which local Hamar youth saw as an inspiration to form a hockey club in the area. The first ice rink was constructed in 1955, and the club was formally accepted into the Norwegian Ice Hockey Association two years later.

To date, the club has won the Norwegian Championships (playoffs) seven times, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2018.

The most notable player in franchise history is Erik Kristiansen who played 20 seasons scoring 509 goals and 406 assists in 649 games. The most internationally known player out of Storhamar is Patrick Thoresen.

During the 2016–17 playoffs, Storhamar Hockey was involved in the longest professional hockey match ever recorded, in their game against Sparta Warriors. After 217 minutes and 14 seconds of playing time, Storhamar won 2-1. The game ended in the 11th period when Joakim Jensen scored the final goal.
