Club History - 1917

During the summer of 1916 a number of N.H.A. players enlisted in the army including Percy LeSueur, Angus Duford and Harry Broadbent. Frank McGee had already gone overseas and Broadbent had given his life. The world conflict depleted the rosters of several teams and inspired the formation of a new NHA member, the 228th Battalion team. However, the 228th Battalion was soon ordered overseas and withdrew from the league after 10 games.

The Senators were charged with a loss for playing Corbet Denneny, an ineligible player, but ended the season in first place with a record of 15 wins and 5 losses. Ottawa ended the season with a 16-1 win over Quebec when Frank Nighbor accounted for five goals to tie the great Joe Malone for the scoring title with 41 goals in 19 games.

 

Arthur Howie (Art) Ross


Art Ross is considered by many as a hockey icon. His contribution came as a player, an innovator, a strategist, a promoter, a coach and a manager. He had a 14-year playing career that started with Westmount in the Canadian Amateur Hockey League in 1905. He scored 11 of his 85 career goals with Ottawa in 1915 and 1916. Ross refined many aspects of the sport, improving the design of both the puck and goal net used in the NHL. Ross died in Boston on August 5, 1964.
