The 1962 Hamilton Red Wings won the Memorial Cup, emblematic of the Canadian junior hockey championship. The team, coached by Eddie Bush and managed by Jimmy Skinner, finished second in the OHA regular season, then downed St. Catharines and Niagara Falls for the league title before dispatching Toronto St. Mikes of the Metro Toronto League. The Wings, who had 11 future NHLers in their ranks, swept the Quebec Citadelles in the Eastern Canada championship to advance to the Memorial Cup against the Edmonton Oil Kings. In a series played in Hamilton, Guelph and Kitchener, the Red Wings whipped the Kings 4 games to one, clinching the national crown with a 7-4 romp.
