The Pittsburgh Lyceum were a professional hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and were members of the Western Pennsylvania Hockey League. After the WPHL was revived for the 1907-08 season, it was deteremined that two new teams would be needed so that the league could go back to its four team format. That year the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Lyceum entered the league. Pittsburgh Lyceum folded on December 23, 1908 and because it was impossible to count on a line-up with players constantly jumping contracts. It was decided to discontinue the WPHL after the season and stick with local hockey. The team returned and played in local hockey teams after the initial fold of the WPHL. The team later played games inside the Winter Garden at Exposition Hall from 1916-1920.
