Club History - 1915

With the emergence of Clint Benedict, the Senators tried to trade netminder Percy LeSueur to Vancouver for Frank Nighbor, but the veteran goalie would not go to the coast. LeSueur finally went to the Ontarios in return for Fred Lake. This would prove to be a wise move as Benedict would lead the league with a 3.30 goals-against-average. After acquiring Art Ross to bolster the defense, the Sens moved up Eddie Gerard to the forward line.

Longtime rivals Ottawa and the Wanderers won their opening games to go to the top of the league and from then on it was a battle between these teams for first place. The race was so close that they were never separated by more that one game, with both teams finishing the season with a 14-6 record. The Wanderers however, scored a whopping 127 goals, 53 more than the Senators.

 

Edward George (Eddie) Gerard


A star participant in football, paddling, cricket, tennis, lacrosse and hockey, Eddie Gerard was born in Ottawa, on February 22, 1890. Eddie turned professional with the Ottawa Senators in the 1913-14 season and became the captain in 1920. In his ten years with the team, he was on four Stanley Cup winners. He died in Ottawa at the age of 47 on August 7, 1937.
