On April 13 it was reported that Ulf Dahlén, who had one year left on his contract, was relieved of his duties as head coach.[1] The decision was officially announced the following day.[2] Dahlén was offered to continue working as part of the coaching staff as an assistant coach, but declined the offer.[1] Kent Johansson was announced as new head coach on April 21.[3] In May Stephan Lundh, who joined the coaching staff in late January 2010 to aid Dahlén,[4] signed a one-year contract to work as an assistant coach to Johansson.[5]

The off-season started with the departure of Janne Niskala—who decided to pursue offers from the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL)[8]—and Joakim Andersson, who signed a three-year entry level contract with the Detroit Red Wings.[9][10] Concurrently the club announced that Jens Karlsson and Martin Røymark were not offered new contracts,[11] and that Mikael Johansson had signed a two-year contract extension.[12] The following week Nicklas Lasu signed a one-year extension with Frölunda,[13] and Patric Blomdahl decided to leave Frölunda to reunite with his junior club AIK which had been promoted back to Elitserien.[13] In May Niklas Andersson decided to sign a one-year contract extension to play his fourteenth season for Frölunda,[14] and goaltender Joakim Lundström was signed to a one-year contract.[15] Later that month the club announced that Oscar Hedman had signed a one-year contract extension, and that Toni Koivisto, Mikko Mäenpää, and William Wallén had all signed two-year contracts with the club.[16] Carl Klingberg and Peter Andersson signed entry-level contracts with the Atlanta Thrashers and Vancouver Canucks respectively, both with the intention of playing for Frölunda on a loan during the 2010–11 season.[17][18] Prior to the June 15 deadline for NHL teams to sign contracted Elitserien players Frölunda had to say goodbye to their second and third best scorers from the 2009–10 season; Fredrik Pettersson and Mathis Olimb, who decided to try their luck in North America, Pettersson with the Atlanta Thrashers and Olimb with the Chicago Blackhawks.[19] In late July Mika Pyörälä signed a three-year contract with Frölunda.
