The Portage Lake Hockey Team

Recommended Posts

A team known as the Portage Lakes which formed in 1899 had pretty much dominated the Hockey scene for years.

Mostly composed of Canadian imports who were too good to play as amateurs in their Amateur Canadian Leagues.By 1904 (IPHL) they were fully paid.


In 1904 as Champions of America they played off against the Montreal Wanderers for the world championship winning by a total of 17-6 at the Amphidrome.

By 1905 they issued a Stanley cup Challenge to the Ottawa Silver Seven(Senators) but were denied due to their professional status.
