The 2010–11 Djurgårdens IF Hockeyseason will be the club's 35th season in the Swedish elite league Elitserien. The regular season began on away ice on September 24, 2009 against HV71 and will be concluded on March 13, 2010 away against Timrå IK.
Djurgården lost several prominent players to NHL, including Jacob Josefson, Gustaf Wesslau, Kyle Klubertanz and Andreas Engqvist. However, in late May Djurgården signed on the replacements. Nils Ekman returned to Djurgården after seasons in the NHL and the KHL.Josef Boumedienne signed a 1+1 deal and Stefan Lassen was acquired from Leksands IF. Former Rögle forward Mario Kempe signed on in June.
Stefan Ridderwall was chosen to be the main goaltender for the season; a position he had shared with Wesslau during the previous season. Five players were brought up from Djurgården's youth program while one of them, goaltender Tim Sandberg, was loaned out to Sundsvall. Due to the uncertainty regarding Marcus Nilson's participation for the coming season, Djurgården signed Daniel Widing as a replacement in August.
Two new goaltender coaches, Thomas Magnusson and Mikael Gerdén, were signed in May when former goaltender coach Jonas Forsberg decided retire from coaching.
Djurgården began the pre-season by playing in the 2010 European Trophy tournament, an extended version of the former Nordic Trophy, which Djurgården won last season. The tournament previously contained only Finnish and Swedish teams, but was in the 2010 tournament expanded to Austria, Czech Republic, Germany and Switzerland. However, Djurgården missed the European Tophy playoffs this year, ending in the fifth spot.
