1903 (March) - Ottawa Silver Seven

 

The 1903 CAHL season ended with both Ottawa and the Montreal Victorias finishing ahead of the defending champion Montreal AAA. As both Ottawa and the Vics had identical records of 6-2-0, a two-game total-goals playoff was arranged to determine both the new CAHL and Stanley Cup champion.

After a tie in game one, Ottawa's famed Gilmour brothers - Billy, Dave and Suddy - combined for five goals and Frank McGee added a hat trick en route to a convincing victory. After winning the Stanley Cup, the Ottawa team became known as the Silver Seven.

The Rat Portage Thistles, playing with only one man over the age of 20, journeyed from northwestern Ontario to Ottawa to meet the Silver Seven. The game proved to be a springboard for the Ottawa club, which successfully defended the Cup for the first of nine straight times.

Billy and Dave Gilmour combined with Frank McGee for all 10 Ottawa goals in the series.

1902-03 - (Mar.) - Ottawa Silver Seven - Suddy Gilmour, Percy Sims, Bouse Hutton, Dave Gilmour, Billy Gilmour, Harry Westwick, Frank McGee, F.H. Wood, A.A. Fraser, Charles Spittal, Harvey Pulford (captain), Arthur Moore, Alf Smith (coach).
