HistoryEdit

The Edmonton Flyers were a senior and then a minor pro team in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

They played two seasons in the Alberta Senior Hockey League from 1939 to 1941. The miltary took over the local arena from 1941 to 1945. The Flyers joined the Western Canada Senior Hockey League after World War II.

The Flyers then turned pro in the Western Hockey League (minor pro) in 1951-52. They were the Detroit Red Wings' number one farm team.

In 1963 the Wings withdrew their sponsorship. This factor, along with problems with the Calgary Stampeders, caused the team to fold. The Stampeders were their closest (geographically) rival and the distances from the other Western Hockey League teams was too much.

They got one senior league championship, in 1947-48, when they also won their only Allan Cup. They also won the Western League championship in 1953, 1955, and 1962.
