Team business[edit | edit source]
The rival Ottawa Capitals applied to join the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada (AHAC). When the AHAC league accepted the Capitals, Ottawa, along with Montreal, Quebec and Victorias left the AHAC. The clubs would form the Canadian Amateur Hockey League (CAHL) along with the Montreal Shamrocks.
Season[edit | edit source]
The future Hall of Fame brothers Hod and Bruce Stuart made their debuts for Ottawa this season. Harvey Pulford did not play this season, recovering from a collarbone injury sustained in the Canadian football championship game. Chauncy Kirby would return to captain the team in his place.
Highlights[edit | edit source]
A controversy erupted between goalkeeper Fred Chittick and the Ottawa club, prompting accusations that Chittick was a "shamateur" receiving payment to play. Bouse Hutton would replace Chittick in net, starting on February 18, after Chittick gave up 16 goals in a game on February 11. Chittick attempted to score by himself, rushing the length of the ice from his net, without success.
