Plans for a new European competition - a development of the Atlantic Cup - have been put forward to the International Ice Hockey Federation. The new tournament, proposed by the Netherlands Ice Hockey Association, would involve four clubs from Britain, two from France, and one each from the Netherlands and Denmark. The competition would be in addition to the revamped European League, which is set to replace the European Cup next season.
