In the fall of 1971, a group of government employees met to set up a hockey league to replace the government team, the Provincials, in the Civil Service league. Leo McCann was one of those employees and served on the executive for a number of years. He played until about the mid 1990s. For a number of years there was an award named after him to recognize contribution to the league. He will always be remembered for the unofficial rule named after him. You need to score a goal to return to play the next year. Anytime I talked to him, he asked how the league is doing. Leo McCann passed away March 30, 2022, aged 82.
