A student at the University of Manitoba, Alston “Stoney” Wise played ice hockey with his alma mater from 1921 through 1923 as a left wing, but found more success later in life as a member of the Winnipeg Hockey Club. With his team, he won the 1930-1931 Allan Cup, awarded annually to the men’s amateur senior ice hockey champions in Canada, and this success earned them the right to represent Canada at the 1932 Winter Olympics, where they took the gold medal in the tournament. Wise played in five games, but only scored two goals. With his Allan Cup-winning team, he was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
