Season results


Prior to the season, the Canadiens suffer a huge loss. Star forward Newsy Lalonde leaves to join the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association, a new league created by brothers Frank and Lester Patrick.

Having already established a great track record in discovering new talent, general manager Jack Laviolette offers contracts to forwards Louis Berlinquette and Pierre Vezina, George’s brother.

But the addition that makes the biggest splash is that of Frank Glass, the former captain of the Montreal Wanderers. In so doing, the Canadiens run afoul of the rule that forbids them from hiring English-speaking players, since they already have a stranglehold on French-speaking players.

Despite the arrival of the new players, losing Lalonde compromises Montreal’s offensive potential.

Napoleon Dorval, one of the team’s investors, begins the season behind the bench. The Canadiens win six of their first 10 games but follow that up with six straight losses.

As a result, the Canadiens end the season with a record of eight wins and 10 losses, settling for a last place finish in the standings.

Didier Pitre, the team’s only real offensive threat, enjoys his most productive season to date with 28 goals, the second highest total in the NHA behind Ottawa’s Skene Ronan.

Georges Vezina plays each of the team’s games and, for a second straight season, is named the league’s top goalie. Despite Montreal’s last place finish, Vezina’s brilliance between the pipes allows the Canadiens to hold their opponents to just 66 goals, the lowest total in the league.
