1902 (March) - Montreal AAA

 

Montreal, having won the championship of the CAHL, challenged Winnipeg, and a best-of-three Stanley Cup series was arranged. Over 4,000 fans packed the Winnipeg Arena for game one, paying as much as $25 for $5 and $10 seats for this battle of the giants. Even larger crowds attended the subsequent games.

After the rival teams split the first two games, Montreal's Art Hooper and Jack Marshall scored early in the third game to give the AAA a 2-0 lead. However, it was a stubborn defense which lifted the Montrealers to victory and earned them the moniker "Little Men of Iron", a nickname which became commonly associated with the Montreal Wanderers who later employed most of the AAA's star players.

1901-02 - (Mar.) - Montreal AAA - Tom Hodge, Dickie Boon, Billy Nicholson, Art Hooper, Billy Bellingham, Charles Liffiton, Jack Marshall, Roland Elliott, Jimmy Gardner.
