2015 NHL Draft
1896 (February)

 

The first east-west confrontation in Stanley Cup history pitted the defending Montreal Victorias against the Winnipeg Victorias, champions of the Manitoba Hockey League (MHL).

"Whitey" Merritt, the Winnipeg netminder, introduced the first set of goalie pads in Stanley Cup history to the Montrealers when he skated onto to the ice with a pair of white cricket pads and proceeded to register a shutout. Dan Bain scored the Cup-winning goal midway through the game, and C.J. Campbell added the other.

1895-96 - (Feb.) - Winnipeg Victorias - G.H. Merritt, Rod Flett, Fred Higginbotham, Jack Armitage (captain), C.J. (Tote) Campbell, Dan Bain, Charles Johnstone, H. Howard.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
