After two consecutive titles by Dunarea Galati, the crown of Romanian champion is back to Brasov for the second title of the Wolves. After a problematic past season, when roster was formed with just Romanian players, the new management hired Canadian coach Martin Lacroix from Bordeaux, finding the perfect scoring machine in Canadian duo Ian McDonald and Bryan McGregor. After a bronze in National Cup and a decent season in MOL Liga, knocked out at quarter finals by Debreceni, Corona Brasov captured the second title of club history eliminating champion Dunarea in semifinal, with a spectacular 2-1 away victory, before to rule out Sport Club Miercurea Ciuc in 6 games of final series, despite a loss at home in game #1 and the sudden departure of Bryan McGregor. In decisive game #6, won 4-3 at shootout, in Miercurea Ciuc, Roberto Gliga, back to Brasov after two seasons in France, was the hero scoring the decisive shootout after 80 thrilling minutes.

"We are champions of Romania, and the title arrived in Miercurea Ciuc, home of our fiercest rival, it's really a big satisfaction for me - said Crona Brasov President Emilian Cernica - although it was really a great suffering after this marathon [of 80 minutes before the shootouts]. Goalie Zoltan Toke was sensational, so I think we deserve the title. From now on, we rest a bit to enjoy this title and then, after the World Championship, we begin to prepare next season. From my point of view, the bar will be raised higher than the season that I imagined"

After dominating the last decade of domestic hockey, Sport Club Miercurea Ciuc finish another season without titles at senio level, consoling with the yet another title in U20 and U18 Leagues

Czech Vaclav Novak, 42, of Progym Gheorgheni, finished fourth after the bronze series lost against Dunarea, was the League Top Scorer.
