1906 (December) - Montreal Wanderers


A new ruling allowed professionals to play with the amateurs in the ECAHA, and the Wanderers were quick to give contracts to Riley Hern, "Pud" Glass, Hod Stuart, Ernie Johnson and Jack Marshall - who officially became the first five pros in Stanley Cup competition. Players like Cecil Blachford and Ernie Russell chose to remain amateur. The challenging New Glasgow squad was strictly amateur.

Amidst the partially pro lineup, it was amateur rover Lester Patrick who led Montreal over New Glasgow with a hat trick in each game.

1905-06 - Montreal Wanderers - Henri Menard, Billy Strachan, Rod Kennedy, Lester Patrick, Frank (Pud) Glass, Ernie Russell, Ernie (Moose) Johnson, Cecil Blachford (captain), Josh Arnold, R.R. Boon (manager).
