On September 17, 1935, the Canadiens were sold for $165,000 to a group of three investors led by stockbroker Ernest Savard. Savard and his partners managed the Canadiens on behalf of the Canadian Arena Company, which also owned the Montreal Maroons. Savard was the team’s president and general manager during the 1935-36 season. Under his leadership, the Canadiens finished last in the NHL with 33 points in 48 games and missed the playoffs. At the end of the 1935-36 season, Savard yielded his job as the Habs’ GM to Cecil Hart, though he remained the team’s president until 1940.
