Edmonton Eskimos (ice Hockey)

The Edmonton Eskimos (first known as the Edmonton Hockey Club) were a Canadian amateur and later professional men's ice hockey team that existed from 1905 to 1927. The Eskimos challenged three times for the Stanley Cup, losing each time; in 1908 versus the Montreal Wanderers, in 1910 versus the Ottawa Senators, and Ottawa again in 1923. The Eskimos beat the Regina Capitals to win the 1923 WHL playoffs. They were also the 1923 regular league champions. The Eskimos came in second in the 1922 and 1926 WCHL playoffs. Team alumni include Eddie Shore.

An Edmonton Eskimos team also played in the Alberta Senior Hockey League in the late 1930s. Other teams in the ASHL included the Calgary Stampeders and the Drumheller Miners; the latter team featured four Bentley brothers, three of whom played in the NHL and two of whom are enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
