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.

 We are excited to be working with the Hockey Hall of Fame!  It was great to hear from Phillip Pritchard, Vice President and Curator and Craig Campbell, Manager, Resource Centre and Archives of the Hockey Hall of Fame.  

Mr. Pritchard e-mailed today saying, “Once again congratulations on the upcoming 60th anniversary of the Lethbridge Maple Leafs.” We had quoted from a letter from Mr. Pritchard in an earlier post where he congratulated the Leafs on their 50th anniversary in 2001.  We had requested a picture of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s display that features Stan Obodiac’s jersey which he also sent (see photo below).

The Hockey Hall of Fame would like to build up its collection of the Lethbridge Maple Leaf Championship team and players. Both of them gave us examples of what they are looking for in the collection. will support  this and post  more about it soon! Stay tuned!

  1. Great to see Stan Obodiac's 51 Maple Leaf Jersey along with the 1939 Trail Smoke Eaters & the 1959 Belleville McFarlands & (I think) the 1952 Edmonton Mercurys Jerseys!
