The contract between the Slovak Ice Hockey Federation and Pro-Hokej who is in charge of the league is scheduled to expire at the end of this month. There was a lot of noise about the federation taking over the league due to disagreement on the topic of a limit on foreigners.

However it seems they have come to an agreement and the contract will be renewed for one more year with Richard Lintner continuing hos position as the league's boss.

There should be a limit on number of foreigners in the league - 1 goalie and 6 skaters per team which I think most of the teams already fulfilled during last season. No idea if the limit would also apply to the Hungarian teams though.
