They appeared in the 1921 Grey Cup as the Edmonton Eskimos, but are not considered a part of Edmonton Eskimos history. They were the first western team to play in the Grey Cup game.[1] The team was renamed the Edmonton Elks in 1922 and played in the 10th Grey Cup but lost for the second consecutive year.[2]
