It proved to be a good move for him, as the Royals won the championship in their first season. After two more seasons with New Westminster the club folded and Lehman found a home in Vancouver with the Millionaires.

Today's featured jersey is a 1914-15 Vancouver Millionaires Hugh Lehman jersey.No original Millionaires jerseys are known to exist and most Millionaires memorabilia was lost when their home rink, the Denman Arena, burned down in 1936.
This jersey style was revived once again by the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL when they wore this same style in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Vancouver Millionaires on March 16th, 2013 and again on March 2nd, 2014 in the Heritage Classic against the Ottawa Senators inside the BC Place football stadium.
