Frisk is one of the oldest ice hockey clubs in Norway dating back to 1935. For most of the early years the club did alright, playing mostly in the lower regional leagues. In 1968 the club was set for a great new era. Farmer Bjørn Mortensen wished to give something back to the community by building an indoor ice rink in Asker. It was the first of its kind in the Oslo area, and gave the club a tremendous lift.

Askerhallen was opened on August 31. 1969, and led to a series of events that would bring Frisk to the pinnacle of Norwegian Ice Hockey in only a few years. In Asker the facilities was first class, but playing material scarce. In Oslo, a club called Tigrene, had the exact opposite problems, so the two clubs decided to merge. Frisk immediately rose to become one of the top teams in the league.

In May 1972 disaster struck, as the Askerhallen was badly damaged in a fire. Mortensen however wished to continue his commitment, and have the arena rebuilt. The new Askerhallen was opened in 1973.

The seventies proved to be the most successful years for Frisk. Winning the Norwegian championships in 1975 and 1979.

Through the eighties Frisk stayed in the top flight, and excelled at producing talented hockey-players. Led by inspirational coach Barry Smith they made a new appearance in the play off finals in 1986. On the most however they failed to make any real impact and economical problems led the club into recession and finally relegation in the mid nineties. A merger with local club Holmen, under the name of Asker Hockey proved unsuccessful and in 1995 Frisk was back in the top league on their own feet.

With local backing and gaining popularity the club went into the new millennium as one of the best teams in the league. In 2002 Frisk could finally celebrate their third Norwegian championship, after beating the Storhamar Dragons in a very exciting final.

After having accomplished the mission, Frisk did not manage to rebuild the same drive, and for the next few seasons results slowly deteriorated. Still having one of the best youth academies in Norwegian hockey Frisk work hard to rejoin the uppermost echelons with limited resources.
