The NAHL: Pittsburgh Athletic Association All-stars

The 1917/18 Pittsburgh Athletic Association found itself under threat of professionalism and without an amateur league to play in. World War I drafted many players, which closed many leagues. The players were exclusively Canadian and some of the best played on the team during the war years. Roy D. Schooley, a Canadian himself, knew where to find talent. With war threatening Pittsburgh’s hockey dreams, Roy met up with Cornelius Fellowes and George V. Brown to create the National Amateur Hockey League.
