How to Read the Site:

We have tried to capture the story of the Lethbridge Maple Leafs and provide a site to post stories, documents, links and photos of their incredible journey to the Championship.

To read their great story from the beginning, scroll to the bottom of the site to part 1 and work your way up through the 34 parts (You may have to click on “older posts” at the bottom to get to part 1). Each part is in chronological order and describes a part of the journey and many contain photos (We continue to add new photos to these posts as we get them).

After part 34 we are posting current related activities, stories and photos from the Galt Museum & Archives, Lethbridge Hurricanes, City of Lethbridge and private collections, as they become available. If you have a photo or story contribution for the site we would be happy to post it.

Hockey Hall of Fame Invites Donations to Their Lethbridge Maple Leaf Collection and Exhibit! VP and Curator Phillip Pritchard Extends Invitation!

If you are a 1951 Leaf player or you are a family member or friend of a 1951 Lethbridge Maple Leaf player and have documents, pictures, diaries, jerseys, rings, trophies, medals and other hockey equipment of the 1950/51 season, the Hockey Hall of Fame would be very interested in preserving the artifacts in their collection as a way of celebrating the 60th Anniversary!

HHOF Vice President and Curator, Phillip Pritchard wrote to us saying: 
 The Hockey Hall of Fame prides itself on having the premier hockey collection in the world and none of this can be done without the assistance of people like yourself and the people of Lethbridge.
I wonder if any of the family members have jerseys from the teams the played in Europe (as a lot of teams traded jerseys then) or jerseys from other teams that might have played for prior to or after the Maple Leafs.
As you can appreciate the Hockey Hall of Fame tells the whole story of hockey, not just the NHL, World Championships would be great to add to the story by talking about players that played for the Maple Leafs and where they played prior to the World Champions and then afterwards.

If you have a donation would be happy to coordinate the gathering and delivery.
Send us an e-mail at:  Thanks -Click on the poster below twice to enlarge.
