While most Flyers fans will be familiar with the merits of fellow Elite League side Dundee Stars, they will be less knowledgeable about their respective opponents from the Netherlands and Romania.

In 1938, the Trappers were founded and they would go on to be crowned Dutch League champions 14 times and Dutch Playoff champions 15 times.
