The 1953-54 Western International Hockey League season was the 8th season in the league's history.


During an end of season meeting, it was moved that all playoff games be best-of-five sets, for it was felt that a seven-game series, which stretches into eight, not only drains the pocketbooks of the fans, but drains the stamina of the players. The question of playing an equal number of games in the WIHL also came up for discussion, with the general feeling being that if Spokane's Flyers can play for the Allan Cup, then they should receive no extra favours.[1]
