Mickey Ion PCHA All-Star Teams

The PCHA All-Star teams were selected by Mickey Ion, the chief referee of the PCHA who reffed most of their games. They are from this thread. Occasionally, there is more than one 1st Team All-Star listed per season at the same position. In many seasons, there is limited information as to 2nd Team All-Stars, so assume the following are 1st Teamers unless otherwise notied.

As indicated above, the WCHL/WHL All-Stars were selected by a local newspaper.

Here are the Hall of Famers most known as centers in the PCHA listed in alphabetical order. I'm including Bernie Morris, who seems to have been omitted from the HHOF because of allegations of draft dodging during World War I, and Cyclone Taylor, who is best known as a rover.

Tommy Dunderdale
PCHA All Star Center (1912, 1913, 1914, 1915, 1920)
PCHA All Star Left Wing (1922)

Frank Foyston
PCHA All Star Forward (C/RW?) (1917, 1918, 1921, 1924)
PCHA All Star Rover (1920)
PCHA All Star Left Wing (1923)
PCHA 2nd Team All Star (C/RW?) (1919, 1922)

Frank Fredrickson
PCHA All Star Center (1921, 1923, 1924)
PCHA 1st Team All Star Substitute (1922)
WHL 1st Team All Star (1926)

Mickey MacKay
PCHA All Star Center (1915, 1917, 1919)
PCHA All Star Rover (1922)
PCHA All Star Right Wing (1923)
PCHA 2nd Team All Star Center (1916, 1918, 1921)
WCHL All-Star Forward (1925)

Bernie Morris
PCHA All Star Forward (C/RW?) (1916, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1921)
PCHA All Star Right Wing (1922)
PCHA 2nd Team All Star Center (1923)

Cyclone Taylor
PCHA All-Star Rover (1912, 1913, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918)
PCHA 2nd Team All-Star Center (1920)

Once again, here is Sturminator's Vs2 study on the top scorers in the PCHA.

Here are All-Star records for players best known for what they did in the NHA/NHL but who spent a couple of years out west:

Jack Adams
PCHA All-Star Center (1921, 1922)

Frank Boucher
PCHA All-Star Spare (1923, 1924)
WCHL All-Star C (sub?) (1925)

Newsy Lalonde
PCHA All-Star Center (1912)
WCHL All-Star Center (sub?) (1924)

Here are the All-Star records for the two Hall of Famers most known as centers in the WCHL/WHL

Dick Irvin
WCHL All-Star Center (sub?) (1924)
PCHA 2nd Team All-Star Center (1917)
WCHL 2nd Team All-Star Center (1922, 1925)

Duke Keats
WCHL 1st Team All-Star Center (1922, 1923, 1924, 1925)
WHL 1st Team All-Star (sub?) (1926)
Still comes down to one opinion - Mickey Ion's, league employee, about a season and season to season comparisons.

Never subjected to a study or criticism of the NHL All-Star teams of the March 1925 MacLean's or similar efforts.
