The Pass Red Devils were a Junior A ice hockey team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League that played in the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass, Alberta from 1972-76. The team relocated to nearby Pincher Creek for two years before settling in Calgary as the Calgary Spurs. The franchise is a descendant of the current Calgary Royals franchise.

Their four-season tenure in Crowsnest Pass was almost singularly unsuccessful. The Red Devils never finished a season with more wins than losses and still hold the record for the worst full season in terms of wins and points in Alberta Junior Hockey League history with their 3-56-1 record in 1974-75 (the Calgary Cowboys and Drumheller Falcons recorded worse records before folding mid-season). Their 28-game losing streak that season is also still a league record[1]

Crowsnest Pass was later represented in the AJHL by the Crowsnest Pass Timberwolves from 1998-2004.
