The 141st Battalion senior Hockey team claimed the 1916-17 Thunder Bay Amateur Hockey League title by defeating teams from Fort William and Port Arthur. At that time in Canadian senior Hockey history, the Allan Cup was played for in a challenge series, with the team that won the Allan Cup in the previous year retaining it until the next season when they would accept challenges from other teams. The 1915-16 Allan Cup had been won by the 61st Winnipeg Battalion who, by the time the 1916-17 season came around, had been sent overseas. As a result the Winnipeg Victorias, the champions of the Winnipeg Patriotic League that season, took over the Allan Cup and welcomed a series of challenges.

Retaining the Allan Cup by making it through their first two challenges by defeating teams from the Winnipeg & District League and the Winnipeg Military League, their third challenge came from the Thunder Bay Senior League champions, the 141st Battalion. Held in Winnipeg, the Victorias won the first game 5-1 and the second 5-4 to win the 2-game, total point series 10 to 6. Unsuccessful in their final challenge series, the Toronto Dentals of the Ontario Hockey Association were named the 1916-17 Allan Cup champions.
