Calgary Canadians

Junior TeamEdit

The Calgary Canadians were a junior ice hockey team that played in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. In 1924, they became the first team from Alberta to play for the Memorial Cup, and in 1926, the first to win it.

In 1924, the Canadians won the Western Canadian championship, the Abbott Cup, for the first time. They went on to face the Owen Sound Greys, Eastern Canada's champion in a two-game, total-goal series in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Greys won the first game 5–3, and tied the second 2–2 to win the Memorial Cup.

The Canadians returned two years later to face off against the Kingston Giants in the 1925-26 Memorial Cup Final. This time, the tournament was a best of three games format, again held in Winnipeg. After splitting the first two games, the Canadians won the third game 3-2. They remain the only Memorial Cup champion to come from Calgary.

The team also won the Alberta Junior Championship in 1922-23, 1924-25, 1930, and 1930-31.
