Club History - 1914

At the National Hockey Association annual meeting on November 8, 1913, it was decided that referees would now drop the puck instead of placing it on the ice between the two players. Once again, infractions and fines were on the agenda as the league agreed that a goalkeeper deliberately lying down to stop a shot shall be punished by a $2.00 fine. A second offense will be a major foul. Jack Darragh led the Senators with a total of $78 in fines, third in the league behind Toronto's Roy "Minnie" McGiffen ($116) and Quebec's "Bad" Joe Hall ($81). At the end of the season fines assessed against players for penalties showed Ottawa at the top of the league. Here is how the teams ranked:

Equipment rules also began taking effect to "control" the sometimes excessive evolution of some pieces of equipment. As a result, it was decided that goalkeeper sticks shall not be wider than 3 1/2 " at any point. The 1913-14 season also marked the first time each team would have a scorer to keep a record of assists.

The Senators' season would not provide perfomances quite as stellar as in the past few seasons. None of the players would stand out and the team finished fourth, with a record of 11 wins and 9 losses. In post season play for the Stanley Cup, the final featured the P.C.H.A champion Victoria Aristocrats and the Toronto Blueshirts, with the latter capturing the coveted Cup.

 

Gordon Roberts


Roberts was a great leftwinger who played professional hockey while acquiring a medical degree at McGill University. He joined Ottawa in 1910, and helped them defend the Stanley Cup against Edmonton. A strong and tireless player, he had a tremendous shot that Clint Benedict, the Ottawa netminder, claimed would curve as a result of Robert's powerful wrist action. He headed for the West Coast in 1916 where he successively played for Vancouver and Seattle while practicing medicine. Roberts died on September 2, 1966.
