Club History - 1930

The league introduced several new rules, including forward passing in all three zones and an off-side rule that prohibits a player from preceding the puck into the attacking zone. The NHL's scoring skyrocketed from 642 goals in 1928-29 to a whopping 1,301 goals in 1929-30.

The Ottawa Senators perked up a little with the acquisition of Art Gagne and Dan Cox and the arrival of two new recruits Wally Kilrea and Syd Howe. However, Ottawa's real troubles were at the box office. The great market crash had taken place and the situation would quickly deteriorate for the Sens. The slumping attendance in Ottawa caused management to transfer a scheduled game to Atlantic City where the Senators played the Rangers before a crowd of 10,000 fans.


George (Buck) Boucher


An outstanding defenseman from a celebrated hockey family, George Boucher played pro for 20 years including 17 seasons in the NHL. Before turning to pro hockey, he had played three years of football with the Rough Riders and was considered a great halfback. He joined the Senators in 1915 and remained with the team for a total of four Stanley Cups. During his career, Boucher scored 122 goals, an outstanding total for a defenseman of that era. He died on October 17, 1960, in Ottawa.
