After not coming to satisfactory terms with the Dey brothers over the Dey Rink, the Ottawas returned to their first home, the Rideau Skating Rink for the season.
Ottawa lost several players from the previous season to the rival intermediate Ottawa Capitals, including Alf Smith. The Capitals would win the AHAC championship with the Ottawa players and apply to join AHAC seniors in 1898.
The game of February 12, 1898 between Ottawa and the Victorias was notable because Fred Chittick, the regular goal-keeper of Ottawa staged a one-man strike because he had not received his share of complimentary tickets. Ottawa played A. Cope instead and lost 9–5. The fans in attendance heckled the defence pair of Harvey Pulford and Weldy Young, and in response Mr. Young went into the crowd to attack a spectator.
