This is the 1952-53 season and playoffs of the Quebec Senior Hockey League (Major).

All-Star GameEdit

In the first ever league all-star game, the Quebec Aces defeated the rest of the league all-stars 8-5 on October 9, 1952, in Quebec City. Only about 2000 people attended the game.

HistoryEdit

In March,the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) suspended the QSHL's parent organization, the Quebec Amateur Hockey Association (QAHA), over the eligibilty of a player in the Quebec Junior Hockey League, This affair had nothing to do directly with the QSHL. The CAHA pleaded with the QSHL to bolt the QAHA and stay with the national body. The QSHL, however, stayed with the QAHA and was therefore not eligible for the Alexander Cup.

The suspension came at the end of the regular season. The quarter finals were already set. To make up for the loss of the Alexander Cup final games, the semi finals were expanded to best of 9 and best of 11. This was probably the longest playoff series in hockey history - and it went the maximum 11 games! The final was expanded to best of 9.

Due to the dispute, the QSHL decided to withdraw from the QAHA and the CAHA and turned pro. The league became the Quebec Hockey League in the next season.
