StandingsEdit

Regular Season GP W L T GF GA Pct %
Spokane Flyers 67 37 24 6 284 253 .597
Trail Smoke Eaters 47 24 21 2 232 200 .532
Nelson Maple Leafs 47 21 24 2 184 196 .468
Kimberley Dynamiters 43 13 27 3 166 219 .337


Played interlocking with Pacific Coast Senior League & Okanagan Senior League.

Note: The Spokane Flyers were an American team and therefore not eligible for the Allan Cup. A series was played between the first place Flyers and second place Trail for the League Championship. No matter who won that series Trail would have advanced to play against the winner of the other series - for a spot in the Allan Cup playoffs. Spokane could advance to the 1951-52 United States National Senior Championship.
