1943-44 Season[edit | edit source]
History[edit | edit source]
The Pacific Coast Senior Hockey Association was an amalgamation of the Vancouver Island Senior League and the Lower Mainland Senior League. Like all Canadian senior leagues this season, it suffered from the new military policy of not playing its teams against civilian teams.
From six teams the league was reduced to two.
The league only ran this one season.
