1966-1970 Calgary Cowboys

The Calgary Buffaloes were a Junior A ice hockey team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League based out of Calgary, Alberta. They were one of the five founding members of the AJHL in 1963.

The Buffaloes captured the AJHL title each of their first three seasons, earning the right to face the Edmonton Oil Kings for the right to play for the Memorial Cup. All three seasons, the Buffaloes were defeated by the powerful Oil Kings.

In 1965, the cross-town Calgary Cowboys withdrew from the AJHL with most of their players moving to the Buffaloes. Prior to the 1966-67 season, the Buffaloes renamed themselves the Cowboys, as a new Western Canada Junior Hockey League team took over the Buffaloes name. The team would retain the Cowboys moniker until it folded midway through the 1969-70 season.
