History[edit | edit source]

The Calgary Buffalos were a junior team.

The first version started out in the Southern Alberta Junior League in 1946-47. The league merged with the Moose Jaw Canucks and the Regina Pats to form the Western Canada Junior League in 1948-49.

The Buffalos won the league title and the Alberta title that season. They folded in 1954.

The second version started out as an independent team in 1960-61. They lost the Alberta final in 1961-62, 1962-63, and 1963-64.

They then entered the new Alberta Junior Hockey League in 1964-65. They won the league final and lost the provincial final in both seasons that they played.

The Buffalos changed their name to Cowboys in 1966 when the Canadian Major Junior Hockey League admitted a team called the Calgary Buffalos.
