BC Hockey 100 Great Moments: 1924 - 1925 Victoria Cougars
Wednesday, December 26, 2018

The Victoria Cougars were the last team from the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) to win the Stanley Cup, as the National Hockey League (NHL) took control of the trophy in 1927. 

The Cougars won the Stanley Cup in the 1924-1925 season when the Montreal Canadiens travelled west to play the Cougars in the playoffs.  The Cougars Stanley Cup victory is the farthest west the Cup has been won, and the team wasn’t only the last PCHA team to win the top honour in hockey, but the last team from the league to compete for it. 

The Cougars defended their title in 1926, but lost to the Montreal Maroons.  After the 1926 season, the Cougars were sold and moved to Detroit.  T

he Victoria Cougars were inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame in 1999.
