The 2013 season was the 13th season of the Australian Ice Hockey League , the highest Australian ice hockey league . The champions were for the second time in the club's history the Sydney Ice Dogs , which last won the title in 2004. The H. Newman Reid Trophy for the regular season winner also went to the Sydney Ice Dogs.


In the regular season, each of the eight teams - the Gold Coast Blue Tongues had withdrawn from play - played a total of 28 games in a four- fold round . The four best-placed teams after the preliminary round qualified for the playoffs in which the champions were played off. For a win after regular time each team received three points, for a win after overtime two points, for a defeat after overtime one point and for a defeat after regular time zero points. In contrast to international practice, the regular playing time was only 50 minutes, as only a quarter of an hour was played in the first two sections of the game and only the final third lasted 20 minutes.
