1936 Winter Olympics
The Halifax Wolverines were chosen to represent Canada in ice hockey at the 1936 Winter Olympics. The Wolverines subsequently disbanded before the 1935–36 season. The Port Arthur Bearcats were invited and promptly accepted. They had lost only one player from the previous season and were given the possibility of adding up to four players from the Wolverines. Great Britain went on to capture the gold medal and Canada received the silver medal. The 1936 tournament was the first time in which Canada did not win the gold medal in ice hockey at the Olympic Games, which led to the CAHA and its president E. A. Gilroy being heavily scrutinized by media in Canada.
