Club History - 1933

In an effort to tighten belts during the height of the Depression, NHL owners decided to put a cap of $70,000 on team payrolls with no single player to be paid over $7,500. That represented a 10% slice for most teams and the players staged a small revolution over the move, but with few consequences. Seat prices were slashed too. The top prices were $3 and fans could get into most arenas for as little as 50 cents.

The Senators returned to the league after a one-year hiatus with Cy Denneny behind the bench. The team called back players they'd loaned to other clubs. Syd Howe, Hec Kilrea and Frank Finnigan, all natives of the Ottawa region, returned home and the Senators obtained Cooney Weiland from the Bruins. The Governor-General did the honors at Ottawa and 8,000 spectators came to welcome the Senators back, but the Maroons spoiled the home-coming with a 2-1 win.


Sydney Harris (Syd) Howe


Howe turned pro with the Senators in 1930 before being loaned to the Philadelphia Quakers and then the Toronto Maple Leafs only to return to Ottawa at the start of 1932-33. Transferred to St. Louis when the Senators folded, his contract was purchased by Detroit. Under Jack Adams, Howe's talent flourished. He set a modern day record in 1943-44, when he scored six goals in a game. He was also on the ice when Mud Bruneteau scored the goal that ended the longest game in Stanley Cup History. He died on May 20, 1976.
