Victoria Maple Leafs Programs

 
 
The latest additions to The Den, a couple of old Western Hockey League programs of the Victoria Maple Leafs. I've got a fair amount of programs from this old league which used to rival the AHL in terms of top minor-pro circuit, these are my first two of Victoria.

 
 
 The Victoria Maple Leafs existed for only three seasons from 1964/65 to 1966/67 as the franchise had transferred from Denver. They would become the Phoenix Roadrunners in 1967.
 
 
The Vic Leafs were the secondary farm-team for the Toronto Maple Leafs after the AHL Rochester Americans and ahead of Tulsa Oilers in the Central League. The big star for Victoria was Milan Marcetta who led the team in scoring each of the three seasons and would play three games for Toronto in the 1967 playoffs earning his name on the Stanley Cup.
