History[]

The St. Catharines TeePees were a junior A team in St. Catharines, Ontario.

They were renamed from the St Catharines Falcons in 1947 when the team was puchased by the president of Thompson Products. The team was named after the initials of the company - T P.

The TeePees won two Memorial Cups - in 1953-54 and 1959-60.

They signed a working agreement with the Buffalo Bisons of the American Hockey League in 1950. When the Chicago Black Hawks bought the Bisons they also took over the TeePees.

They were renamed after their NHL parent, Chicago Black Hawks in 1962 and became the St Catharines Black Hawks.
