The Alberta Senior Hockey League or ASHL was a senior ice hockey league that operated between 1936 and 1941 in Alberta, Canada. It was formed by merging the Southern Alberta League and the Edmonton City Senior League.
In the 1940-41 season, the league played an interlocking schedule with the West Kootenay League.
In 1941 the league ceased operations due to World War II.
After the ASHL folded, the teams went on to join the the Alberta-British Columbia Senior League for the 1941-42 season. That league only lasted one season before folding. The Alberta Inter-Services League, made up of military teams, became the only senior league in the province until 1945.
