The Senators presented a strange appearance for what was to be the club's final season in Ottawa. Newcomers were Walter Kalbfleisch, Ralph Bowman, Gerald Shannon, Max Kaminsky and Ted Saunders who played under George Boucher. It was agreed that the NHL would give its support to any effort of the Ottawa club to dispose of its team and franchise under conditions to be approved by the board of governors.
The last NHL game to be played in Ottawa before the return of the "new" Senators in 1992, the New York Americans defeated the Senators 3-2 before 6,500 fans. Prior to the 1934-35 season, the Ottawa franchise was moved to St. Louis where it would be called the Eagles.
On March 15, 1934, Frank Finnigan scored the last goal by a player in Ottawa. The unassisted goal was scored at 1 minute and 7 seconds of the second period.

Ralph (Cooney) Weiland
The Egmondville, Ontario, native played 11 years in the NHL with Boston, Detroit and Ottawa. A very slick stickhandler, Weiland came to the Bruins from Minneapolis and quickly became part of the "Dynamite Line" with Dit Clapper and Dutch Gainor. He was sold to Ottawa for the 1932-33 season and then went to Detroit before returning to Boston in 1935-36.
