History[edit | edit source]

The Calgary Stampeders were a senior and then a minor pro team.

They played in the Alberta Senior Hockey League from 1938-39 to 1941-42; the Western Canada Senior Hockey League from 1945-46 to 1949-50; the Western Canada Major Hockey League in 1950-51; the Western Hockey League (minor pro) until 1962-63; the Alberta Senior Hockey League from 1968 to 1971; and the Prairie Senior Hockey League in 1971-72, their last season.

After a terrible 7th place finish in their first season, the Stampeders went on a tear. They finished first in 8 out of their next 12 senior seasons. They played in 5 Allan Cup finals, winning in 1945-46.

They won the Western Hockey League (minor pro) title in 1953-54 and then went on to win the Edinburgh Trophy.
