1907 (January) - Kenora Thistles


Because no ice had been available after the Wanderers took the Stanley Cup title from Ottawa in 1906, this east-west confrontation had to be delayed until the start of the 1907 schedule.

The Kenora Thistles, formerly the Rat Portage Thistles, brought in Art Ross as a ringer in an effort to beef up the lineup which had failed to win its Cup challenges in 1903 and 1905.

Tom Phillips scored seven times in the two games, including all four Thistles goals in the first contest, as Kenora (with its population of 4,000 people) became the smallest town ever to win a Stanley Cup championship.

1906-07 - (Jan.) - Kenora Thistles - Eddie Geroux, Art Ross, Si Griffis, Tom Hooper, Billy McGimsie, Roxy Beaudro, Tom Phillips, Joe Hall, Russell Phillips.
