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.

Lyle Roth is the last living member of the Lethbridge Maple Leafs


Thanks again to James Sinclair for sending us the following  report and photos on the status of the Lethbridge Maple Leaf teams:

"I also have some sad news to report...
I've had limited contact with the Three (3) Ontario Players that were sent over just prior to the 1951 Championships in Paris.

(The Famous "Flick, Flanagan, Roth" Line that Dominated Ontario Senior Hockey in the 50's)

After Shorty Malacko's passing - these 3 players were the last living remaining Players..
But I've found out that Bill Flick passed away March 20th 2018 he was 91 yrs old & Dennis (Dinny) Flanagan passed away on Nov 25/18..he was 88 yrs old

Just Leaves Micky (Lyle) Roth as the last living Player from this Team.
Unfortunately,  Time Marches on,,,,



Thanks James
