The Alberta Inter-Services League took over senior hockey in Alberta during the latter years of World War II.

From 1942-43 through 1944-45 it was the only senior hockey league in the province.

Canada did have conscription during those years and many NHL players found that they had to perform essential jobs or military service. They also could not travel to the United States. Some of these players ended up playing for leagues such as this one which were close to their homes.

This raised the level of hockey in this league.
