ZURICH—Ice hockey's governing body has invited European national federations, leagues and clubs to talks about reviving a continental competition and their relationship with the NHL.

The International Ice Hockey Federation says stakeholders will meet at a June 12-14 forum in Barcelona, Spain.

IIHF President Rene Fasel says "the focus will be on finding a format for a competitively and commercially viable top European club competition."

It would follow the Champions Hockey League, which folded with financial problems after its debut 2008-09 season.

Fasel says "key points" will include cooperation with the NHL, the NHL players' union and the Canadian (Junior) Hockey League.
