Club History - 1924

On the ice, the Senators had all their regulars back in the line-up with the exception of Eddie Gerard. On February 6th, before a record crowd of 3,600 Prince Erik of Denmark faced the puck. His Highness was accompanied by his father, Prince Valdemar of Denmark and Prince Viggo, his brother. The league announced that a special trophy called the Dr. Hart Trophy would be awarded to the player judged most useful to his team during the regular season. The first winner was longtime Senators' star Frank Nighbor who edged out Sprague Cleghorn by a single vote. Nighbor's extraordinary clean play combined with superior skills eventually caught the eye of Lady Byng, wife of Canada's governor general, who was a regular visitor at the Sens home games. Lady Byng was so taken by Nighbor's exemplary play that she decided to present a trophy to the player judged to have exhibited the best type of sportmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability. Nighbor was to win the award seven times in eight years.


Clint Benedict


Born in Ottawa on September 26, l894, Clint Benedict played on four Stanley-Cup-winning teams - the Ottawa Senators for three and the Montreal Maroons. Benedict also helped remove a rule that prohibited goaltenders stopping play by falling on the puck. In Stanley Cup play, Benedict had 16 shutouts and an average of 2.16 goal-against per game. He died November 12, 1976, in Ottawa.
