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.

Lethbridge Maple Leafs CTV News Story: Leaf Don McLean Discusses Receiving Championship Rings on the 50th Anniversary

Lethbridge Maple Leafs Championship Rings:  A Symbol of Lifelong Friendship.   Lethbridge Maple Leaf Don McLean discusses how the Leafs  finally received championship rings in 2001,  50  years after their world championship win.  This "Ring Story" was featured on Lethbridge CTV News with Terry Vogt reporting in 2001.  The drive to have the players receive the rings was spearheaded by long time Leaf fan James Sinclair. James was a key organizer of the 50th anniversary celebrations in 2001.  In appreciation for his work the Lethbridge Maple Leaf team members made James an honourary Leaf team member and he also received his own Leaf  ring.
