The Totems dominated the Coast Division in the regular season, finishing with a 40-27-3 record. Guyle Fielder led the league in scoring for the third straight year with 24 goals, 95 assists, and 119 points - the third season in a row that he put up over 100 points, and earning him his second straight Coast Division MVP. Other league leaders included Tom McVie, with nine game-winning goals, and Frank Arnett with 210 penalty minutes, a new league record.

Seattle's dominance continued in the playoffs. After sweeping Victoria three games to none, they knocked off Vancouver in the division finals four games to one to make it into the finals against Calgary. The Totems were much too strong for the Prairie Division champs, sweeping the Stampeders four games to none to win their first WHL championship. They had put up an 11-1 playoff record and had outscored their opponents by a 44-20 margin, including two shutouts.

The WHL First Team All-Star squad was comprised almost entirely of Totems, featuring Fielder and Val Fonteyne as forwards, Gordie Sinclair on the blueline, and Bev Bentley in goal.
