When the Senators joined the National Hockey Association they brought the Stanley Cup into what was now unquestionably Canada's top hockey league. By winning the 1910 NHA title, the Montreal Wanderers took possession of the Stanley Cup from Ottawa and accepted a challenge from Berlin, 1910 champions of the OPHL. The Wanderers held on to their trophy in a one-game affair, with Ernie Russell (4) and Harry Hyland (3) scoring all seven goals for the winners.
1909-10 - Montreal Wanderers - Cecil Blachford, Ernie (Moose) Johnson, Ernie Russell, Riley Hern, Harry Hyland, Jack Marshall, Frank (Pud) Glass (captain), Jimmy Gardner, R.R. Boon (manager).

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
