NHL rights transferred to Detroit from Chicago (AHA) after AHA club owners purchased Detroit (NHL and IAHL) franchises, September 2, 1932. Traded to Boston by Detroit with Cooney Weiland for Marty Barry and Art Giroux, July 11, 1935. Traded to Montreal by Boston with Jean Pusie and cash for Roger Jenkins, July 13, 1935.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
