Edmonton Flyers

The Edmonton Flyers are a defunct ice hockey team that was based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The team existed from 1940 until 1963, playing in various senior amateur and minor professional leagues during that time. In 1948, the Flyers won the Allan Cup as Canadian senior hockey champions, and would later capture three Lester Patrick Cups as Western Hockey League champions.

The Flyers were a minor pro affiliate of the National Hockey League's Detroit Red Wings during their tenure in the WHL. During this time, many future NHL stars passed through the Flyers organization. Among them were Al Arbour, Johnny Bucyk, Glenn Hall, Bronco Horvath, and Norm Ullman.

The Flyers played in the Edmonton Gardens during their entire existence.
