The 1912–13 Toronto Tecumsehs season was the first season of the Toronto Tecumsehs professional ice hockey team in the National Hockey Association (NHA).

Team business[edit]

Before the season started, the franchise was transferred to the Tecumseh amateur ice hockey organization after a previous sale from Ambrose O'Brien of the NHA failed. The team was placed under the management of goaltender Billy Nicholson, who operated as manager, coach and player.

Regular season[edit]

The team's first goal was scored by Harry Smith in the first period of their first game against the Montreal Wanderers.[1]

The team placed in sixth place in the league and failed to qualify for the playoffs.
