The Pinder family from Saskatoon, Herb, Gerry, Dick, Herb Sr., Ross had controlling interest, plus Wil Kline, Gord Knowlton, Russ Sneath and Bob Strumm all had shares of the owner ship. The nine owners bought the Pats during the summer until 1983 when Herb became the lone owner.

Bob Strumm was named the general-manager (former sportswriter, columnist for the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix and general-manager for Billing Bighorns for two years). Strumm brought in coach Brian Murray from the east to coach the Pats and in the first year led the club to the Memorial Cup final.

After but a couple years, the Edmonton Oil Kings were announce, Tuesday, April 10, as being sold by owner Bill hunter, Vic Mah, Ed and George Assely, Ed Huges, Wayne Tennant to Pat Cooper of Portland, Oregon and moved the team to Great Falls, Montana, were they were know as the Americans. The reason for the move was the poor support the team had received.
