1904 (January) - Ottawa Silver Seven

 

Before beginning the new CAHL season, the Ottawa Silver Seven successfully defended the Cup against a new Winnipeg team. Ottawa's "One-eyed" Frank McGee registered a hat trick in the first game, but captain Bill Breen rallied the challengers with two goals in the second. In the finale, goalie Bouse Hutton shut down Winnipeg completely, with McGee scoring the game-winner.

Prior to the opening contest, both teams agreed to paint what essentially became the first "goal line" in hockey history. A red line was drawn from goalpost to goalpost in order to aid the referee.

Joe Hall made his Stanley Cup debut with the underdog Rowing Club.
