Fort Frances Canadians

The Fort Frances Canadians were a senior ice hockey team in the Northern Amateur League, from Fort Frances, Ontario. The team was organized following World War II, and led by player-coach Pat Wilson.[1] The Fort Frances Canadians were finalists in the 1951 Allan Cup, and champions of the 1952 Allan Cup.[2] Goaltender Ray Frederick, and defenceman Ed Kryzanowski, both played in the National Hockey League after being part of the Fort Frances Canadians.[3]

Today, a youth hockey organization uses the Fort Frances Canadians name for its competitive teams.[4]
