Biography

The Edmonton Waterloo Mercurys were an outstanding hockey team from 1947 to 1952.

Following their victory, the team was selected to represent Canada in the 1950 World Hockey Championships in London. They toured Europe prior to the World Championships and won 36 exhibition games. They went on to win the World Championship that year. The excellent showing of the team earned them the opportunity to represent Canada at the 1952 Olympic Games in Oslo. They made an exhibition tour of Europe before the Games started and won 42 hockey games. The Edmonton Waterloo Mercurys won the gold medal at the 1952 Winter Olympic Games.
