Percy Thompson

Percy Thompson was the part-owner and manager of the Hamilton Tigers professional ice hockey team in the National Hockey League.

In 1920, Thompson was a partner in the 'Abso-Pure Ice Company' of Hamilton, Ontario, which had built the Barton Street Arena. After being approached by competing interests interested in setting up a professional ice hockey team in Hamilton, Abso-Pure and Thompson paid $5000 to Frank Calder, the president of the NHL to purchase the Quebec Bulldogs franchise. The payment was made directly to Frank Calder, not the NHL.

Thompson would remain manager of the team until it was dissolved in the fall of 1925, after the team's players had been sold to the New York Americans and the franchise revoked by the NHL.
