For the sixth time in the history of the tournament, a Swedish Hockey League team has won the Champions Hockey League title. 

Rogle beat Finnish outfit Tappara Tampere 2-1 on Tuesday for the championship, with Daniel Zaar scoring both goals for the team. 

His first goal came three minutes into the game, marking a big goal after just joining the team following the conclusion of the KHL regular season. He then scored on the man advantage in the second, but Valtteri Merela scored to make it 2-1 early in the third period to make things interesting for Tappara. They tried to eat into the deficit, but Rogle's Christoffer Rifalk stood tall when it mattered most to finish the game.

Rogle won the first CHL event since 2019-20 when Frolunda won its second consecutive title and fourth in tournament history. Lulea won the first championship in 2014-15, with JYP being the lone team outside of Sweden to win after beating the Vaxjo Lakers in 2018.
