The Duquesne Athletic Club or Pittsburgh Duquesne were a professional hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and were members of the Western Pennsylvania Hockey League. The team played in the league during its final season in 1908-09. The Pittsburgh Lyceum folded on December 23, 1908 and because it was impossible to count on a line-up with players constantly skipping out on their contracts. It was decided to discontinue the WPHL after the season and stick with local hockey. The team returned and played in local hockey games after the initial fold of the WPHL. The team later played games inside the Winter Garden at Exposition Hall from 1916-1920.
