Edmonton Oil Kings is Alberta’s major junior ice hockey team, founded just in 2007 under the Western Hockey League. Originally, the old Oil Kings franchise used to participate in the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League (WCJHL). As early as the 1950s, Oil Kings struggled to raise the flag for the Albertans by taking in elite players from junior Edmonton ice hockey teams. One of the earlier general managers, Leo LeClerc, even pulled Oil Kings out of the WCJHL and entered the team into the Central Alberta Hockey League.
