1926 - Montreal Maroons

 

The Montreal Maroons became NHL champions in just their second season in the league and hosted the first Stanley Cup series to be played at the Montreal Forum.

Playing in his first career Stanley Cup series, Nels Stewart scored six of Montreal's 10 goals, and goaltender Clint Benedict recorded an unprecedented three shutouts en route to the Maroons' Stanley Cup triumph versus the Victoria Cougars.

With the NHL taking full control of the Stanley Cup following the Western Hockey League's demise soon after this series, the 1926 championship marked the finale of one of the most dynamic eras in Stanley Cup history. Since 1893, Cup play had grown from an amateur challenge in eastern Canada to a professional competition involving teams from across the continent.

1925-26 - Montreal Maroons - Clint Benedict, Reg Noble, Frank Carson, Dunc Munro, Nels Stewart, Harry Broadbent, Babe Siebert, Chuck Dinsmore, Merlyn Phillips, Hobie Kitchen, Sam Rothschild, Albert Holway, George Horne, Bernie Brophy, Eddie Gerard (manager-coach), Bill O'Brien (trainer).
