History

The Saskatoon Blades were originally founded in 1964 as a team in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and transferred leagues in 1966-67 with the foundation of the Western Hockey League. They are the only team remaining in the league from the WHL's foundation still in their original city (the Regina Pats are also still around, but they dropped out of the WHL for a few seasons early on to go back to the SJHL). The Blades spent many seasons at the old Saskatoon Arena where they built up a strong fanbase and developed many top players. In 1988, they moved to Saskatchewan Place and hosted the Memorial Cup tournament in May, 1989, where they finished the round robin undefeated. However, the Blades lost in overtime in the Memorial Cup Final to the Swift Current Broncos. They also lost in the WHL league finals in 1992 and 1994 to the Kamloops Blazers in seven games. The Blades have never won the WHL Championship, and currently have the longest championship drought in the Canadian Hockey League.
