The Eskimos club was formed for the 1910-11 season by Deacon White from the remains of the amateur Edmonton Hockey Club and inherited its membership in the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association [1] In 1919-20, the AAHA formed the "Big Four" senior league, composed of two teams in Edmonton, and two in Calgary. This league folded in 1921, and the Eskimos helped to found the Western Canada Hockey League.

In 1922-23, Edmonton would win the WCHL championship and played in the Stanley Cup finals against Ottawa. See 1923 Stanley Cup Finals.

The Thistle Rink[2] was the home of the Edmonton Eskimos until it burned down in 1912.
