OverviewEdit

"Bisons" is the name of the sports teams of the University of Manitoba, located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Their home arena is the Wayne Fleming Arena, inside the Max Bell Centre. They are members of the Canada West Universities Athletic Association (CWUAA) and Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS).

The Bisons started play in junior and senior leagues. In 1923 the Bisons defeated the Kitchener Colts 14-6 on aggregate to win the 1923 Memorial Cup. In 1928 they defeated the Montreal Victorias 2-games-to-1 to win the 1928 Allan Cup. That team, as the "U of M Grads", then won the 1931 IIHF World Championship.

Against university competition, the Bisons started play in the Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (WCIAU) in 1919-20, when they won the inaugural conference championship. They did not compete every season. In 1962-63 the WCIAU changed its name to the Western Intercollegiate Athletic Association (WIAA). The Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (as it then was) started the University Cup in 1963.

When the WIAA split in two following the 1971-72 season, the University of Manitoba became a founding member of the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC), along with the University of Winnipeg, Brandon University, and Lakehead University. The University of Regina subsequently joined. After Winnipeg and Lakehead departed, the GPAC merged with the CWUAA.

The Bisons have one national university title, having won the 1965 University Cup. In 1976, 1977, 1984, and 1985 they won the GPAC conference title. In 2005 and 2010 they qualified for the University Cup.

Senior/Junior TeamsEdit

The first recorded results for the Manitoba Bisons are in senior competition from the 1908-09 season, 11 years before they started with university competition. Thereafter they played senior and junior competition for several years, often intermingled with university competitions. The Bisons ceased competition as a senior team following the 1931 world title (at least, no records of it exist). They did continue in junior competitions until 1937.

The Bisons won provincial senior titles (Pattison Cup) in 1910 and 1928, and provincial junior titles (Turnbull Cup) in 1922, 1923, and 1925.

University TeamsEdit

The Bisons first played university hockey in the 1919-20 season of the WCIAU, joining the Saskatchewan Huskies and Alberta Golden Bears (who had unofficially started the conference the previous season). The Bisons won conference titles in 1920, 1922, and 1924. In those days, the Bisons also played in local leagues in addition to, or in place of, the WCIAU. In fact, for a period in the 1920s the university winner gained a berth in the western Allan Cup playdowns, as happened with the 1922 Bison team. In other years the university teams had to win a provincial title just like anybody else if they wanted to claim the Allan Cup.

In the 1946-47 season the Bisons hosted the Toronto Varsity Blues, who were on their western tour. It was the first ever series between eastern and western university teams. On December 28th the teams tied 2-2. The Bisons won the rematch on December 30th 8-4.

The WCIAU changed its name to the WIAA for the 1962-63 season. In the 1972-73 season the WIAA was split into two new conferences: the CWUAA (for the western teams) and the GPAC (for the eastern teams). The GPAC lasted until 1984-85. The Bisons took the GPAC title in 1976, 1977, 1984, and 1985. In each of those seasons the Bisons were eliminated in CIAU (the forerunner of the CIS) regional playoffs.

The GPAC hockey league folded after the 1985 season and the surviving teams (Brandon, Regina, and Manitoba) joined the CWUAA. The Bisons' current conference foes are Alberta, Calgary, Lethbridge, Mount Royal, Regina, Saskatchewan, and UBC.
