Portland, Oregon, has an old and rich hockey tradition. The City of Roses was home to six professional hockey teams that took the ice in fi ve different leagues, including two major league clubs. It all started with the Rosebuds (1914 1918), who earned the distinction of being the fi rst United States based team to compete for the Stanley Cup. The tradition continued with a second version of the Rosebuds (1925 1926), the original Buckaroos (1928 1931), a second version of the Buckaroos (1933 1941), the Eagles/Penguins (1944 1951), and the Western Hockey League (WHL) Buckaroos (1960 1974). The WHL Buckaroos won three Patrick Cup titles and iced several minor league hockey legends, including Gordon Fashoway, Guyle Fielder, Don Head, Andy Hebenton, Norm Johnson, Art Jones, Connie Madigan, and Bill Saunders. Several Hockey Hall of Famers Tommy Dunderdale, George Hay, Dick Irvin, and Moose Johnson also spent time on Portland teams.
