Season results


The rivalry between the NHA and the PCHA is at fever pitch and the two leagues’ teams compete to obtain the best players on the market. This time, the Canadiens get the better of the Vancouver Millionaires as they repatriate Newsy Lalonde by offering him a lucrative contract. Lalonde regains the team’s captaincy.

Didier Pitre is less than thrilled to play second fiddle but his demands to be traded fall on deaf ears. George Kennedy, the Canadiens’ manager, also offers a contract to veteran forward Donald Smith, a former member of the Victoria Aristocrats.

On paper, the team features its best lineup since it was formed. Lalonde, Pitre and Smith lead the Canadiens’ offense, while goalie Georges Vezina takes care of shutting down the opposition’s best forwards.

Napoleon Dorval’s men do not disappoint by winning seven of their first 10 games of the season. On January 18, in the sixth game of the regular season, Vezina records his first career shutout in a 6-0 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Just like the previous season, though, the Canadiens struggle in February and win only once in eight games to tumble down the standings. Montreal finishes the season in fifth place with a 9-11-0 record.

Star players Lalonde and Pitre avoid letting their squabble affect their play on the ice, notching 25 and 24 goals, respectively.
