Innsbruck played a strong first round last season and entered the playoffs in third place, where they were eliminated in the quarterfinals against the spusu Vienna Capitals. In the summer, the team lost a number of well-known players, including Adam Helewka, Daniel Leavens and Tyler Coulter, three of the top four scorers of last season.
With Brady Shaw, however, last year's top scorer from Innsbruck continues to play for the Sharks. As well as Corey Mackin, with 2 goals and 5 assists currently the best Tyrolean striker and at the same time with Salzburg's Thomas Raffl with 7 scorer points the third best scorer in the entire league. Constant, however, is the coaching bench; the 39-year-old Canadian Mitch O'Keefe, who started as Goalie Coach in Innsbruck in 2018, leads the Sharks into his fourth term as Head Coach.
