The Prairie Hockey League was a senior league in Western Canada that operated in the 1971-72 season. Originally there were five teams:

By 1971 senior hockey was on its last legs in the west. Two teams from Alberta (Edmonton & Calgary) and three from Saskatchewan (Regina, Saskatoon, and Yorkton) banded together to form this league. Attendance and interest were very low.

In January the Calgary Stampeders folded after returning from a tour of Europe. The four remaining teams finished in the following order:

  1. Edmonton
  2. Saskatoon
  3. Yorkton
  4. Regina

The Edmonton Monarchs split off from the league, entering the 1971-72 Western Canada Allan Cup Playoffs as the representative of Alberta. Yorkton and Regina were playing off for the right to meet Saskatoon in a final to determine the Saskatchewan representative.

Just before the playoffs were to start the Saskatoon Quakers withdrew from the league. THe Regina-Yorkton series became the final for Saskatchewan.

The league was not ressurected the next season. In 1972-73, the World Hockey Association came to Edmonton.
