Ottawa's Harvey Pulford retired and was replaced by Fred Lake. Billy Gilmour and Edgar Dey took over from Tom Phillips and the retired Alf Smith. Later in the season, another all-time hockey great in the person of Albert Kerr joined the team, scoring three goals in his first game, on January 10. On February 6, Ottawa defeated the Wanderers 9-8 before a crowd of 8,000. The game was tied with one minute to play when Billy Gilmour broke through and scored the winner, Ottawa's first win over the Wanderers in Montreal in four years.
The big game on March 3 was not as good as the previous battles between these great rivals and Ottawa was not pressed to win 8-3, clinching the E.C.H.A. championship and the Stanley Cup.
Fred Eric (Cyclone) Taylor
Cyclone Taylor was a brilliant hockey player in every phase of the game. When he played defense for Ottawa and Renfrew, his rushes earned him his famous nickname. Born in Tara, Ontario, on June 23, 1883, Cyclone's scoring feats are legendary. He collected 194 goals in 186 league games, and was honoured by King George VI with the Order of the British Empire. He died June 9, 1979, in Vancouver.
