The ice hockey section of the Hellerup IK sports club was founded on April 23, 1965.[1] The club made their debut in the AL-Bank Ligaen for the 1967–68 season. The ice hockey section of Hellerup IK participated regularly in the AL-Bank Ligaen for many years, before becoming independent due to financial reasons, becoming IC Gentofte in 1996. Gentofte participated in the AL-Bank Ligaen for three more years, in 1997, 1998, and 1999, before withdrawing due to financial issues. The club qualified for the promotion/relegation round of the AL-Bank Ligaen in the 2000 and 2002 seasons, but failed to earn a promotion to the league.
