1948-1949

Regina Pats and Moose Jaw Canucks pulled away from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and joined with four Alberta Teams; Calgary Buffaloes, Lethbridge Native Sons, Medicine Hat Tigers and Bellevue Lions.

Bellevue was a team from Crowsnest Pass, B.C., 100 miles straight west of Lethbridge, a mining town just on the B.C. side of the famous Rocky Mountains. The pass cuts through the Rocky Mountains from Albert to B.C. near the U.S. border. The team played in the Bellevue 2,000 seat Arena.

In an unbalanced schedule, Regina and Moose Jaw played only twenty-six games, while the Alberta teams played thirty-two. The first-four games between Moose Jaw and Regina counted one point only. All the inter provincial games counted four points. Remainder of the Pats and Canuck games were two points.

Monday, December 13th, at Bellevue Arena, the Regina Pats and the Lions played through a penalty free game.
