1899 (February) - Montreal Victorias

 

The Amateur Hockey Asociation had dissolved prior to the start of the season with the Canadian Amateur Hockey League (CAHL) taking its place as the top hockey league in the country. The five former AHA franchises now comprised the new league.

The Montreal Vics successfully defended the Cup against their perennial rivals from Winnipeg in a series marred by controversy. After narrowly winning the first game of the set, Montreal's Bob McDougall slashed and injured Winnipeg's Tony Gingras, and the referee imposed a two-minute penalty, which Winnipeg protested was too lenient. The westerners were so incensed, they left the ice.

Insulted by the incident, the referee left the arena. He did reappear over an hour after play had stopped, and gave Winnipeg five minutes to resume play. Upon their failure to return, the game was awarded to Montreal.

1898-99 - (Feb.) - Montreal Victorias - Gordon Lewis, Mike Grant, Graham Drinkwater, Cam Davidson, Bob McDougall, Ernie McLea, Frank Richardson, Jack Ewing, Russell Bowie, Douglas Acer, Fred McRobie.
