The Wanderers, Montreal’s first hockey dynasty, began play in 1903 and competed for the Stanley Cup eight times as a nominally amateur squad, winning six of the challenges, before joining the National Hockey Association in 1909. The 1907 edition was the first to engrave players name on the Stanley Cup

Losing only one of the dozen games on the schedule they captured the NHA’s O’Brien Trophy as league champions in the inaugural season and went on to a seventh Stanley Cup triumph.

A charter member of the National Hockey League in the fall of 1917, the Wanderers had trouble attracting players and began the season with three straight losses. On January 2nd, 1918, the Montreal Arena, also home to the Canadiens, burned down. The homeless Wanderers ceased operations.

Montreal’s NHA teams met for the first time on February 12, 1910 with the Wanderers prevailing by a 9-4 score. Their only NHL match-up, on December 21, 1917 went the other way, with the Canadiens winning an 11-2 mismatch.

The Canadiens and Wanderers never met in postseason competition.
