The Sydney Millionaires were an early Canadian professional ice hockey team, that challenged for the Stanley Cup in 1913.

History[edit | edit source]

Sydney joined the Maritime Professional Hockey League (MaPHL) for the 1912–13 season. The team won the league title and challenged for the Stanley Cup against the Quebec Bulldogs. The team won the league title in the 1914 season, but did not challenge the Toronto Blueshirts for the Cup. The MaPHL folded and the Eastern Professional Hockey League was organized for the 1914–15 season. The team was in third and last place when the league folded.

The team name was resurrected in 1922 for a new senior team, which played for two Allan Cup national titles. The name was also used for a junior team, which started up in 1949. The name was used for various other Cape Breton leagues.

1913 challenge[edit | edit source]

Joe Malone made a try for Frank McGee's record, but fell short at 9 goals. He was not in the lineup for the second game.[1]
