The Hamilton Tigers were a professional ice hockey team, and a member of the National Hockey League, based in Hamilton, that played from 1920–1925. The Tigers were formed from the sale of the Quebec Bulldogs NHL franchise to Hamilton interests, after years of struggling, the franchise finished first in the league in the 1924-25 NHL season. However, a strike after the season resulted in the franchises dissolution. The players contracts were sold to New York City interests to stock the expansion New York Americans, a name-sake amateur team existed prior, and during, the NHL teams existence and a minor league professional team named the Hamilton Tigers existed from 1926 until 1930. The origins of the team go back to the old Quebec Hockey Club team, originally an amateur team, it turned professional in 1909. That season proved to be a one, despite the presence of Joe Malone the club only finished with four wins in 24 games. After the 1919–20 season, the NHL took back the Quebec franchise and sold the team to the Abso Pure Ice Company of Hamilton, the club was moved to Hamilton for the 1920–21 season and renamed the Hamilton Tigers.
This was done to prevent the startup of a rival league, at the time, the NHL had no teams in the United States and no teams in Western Canada. Hamilton was the fifth-largest city in the country and third-largest in Central Canada, percy Thompson, a part-owner and manager of the Barton Street Arena, would be the manager of the team. The move to Hamilton did not improve the teams record, as a result, the NHL ordered the other three teams to supply players to the Tigers. Even with Malone managing to score 30 goals in only 20 games, the next three seasons were just as dreadful as the first one. The Tigers finished dead last every year, making a total of 5 straight with last place finishes, during these dreadful years, the Tigers attempted a rebuilding phase to bring the team up to par. After the 1921–22 NHL season, they hired Art Ross as their new coach and made many changes, including trading superstar Malone to the Montreal Canadiens for Bert Corbeau. The fans were outraged at seeing Malone leave, but the Tigers felt vindicated when Malone — nearing the end of his career — only scored one goal in twenty games in one season for Montreal.
Prior to the 1922–23 season, the NHL would hold its governors meeting at the Royal Connaught Hotel on King Street and this year saw the Tigers achieve a team high of nine wins in 24 games. It was the season, that saw the results of the previous years wheelings and dealings. With yet another new coach, the Hamilton Tigers roared off to an impressive 10–4–1 start in the 1924–25 NHL season. Only halfway through the season, they had more wins than any season in their NHL history
Ottawa Senators (original)

It was composed of clubs from Montreal plus a Quebec City club. Ottawas Thomas D. Green was named the first president of the league, under the format, Ottawa lost the one challenge it played in that first 1887 season to the Montreal Victorias. After that season, Ottawa HC became inactive, the Royal Rink, which had been their primary facility, had been converted to a roller skating rink, and ice rink facilities were at a shortage. This changed with the opening of the Rideau Skating Rink in February 1889, One of the principal organizers in the restarting of the team was Ottawa Journal publisher P. D. Ross, who played on the team

The Stanley Cup, the oldest professional sports trophy in North America, is awarded annually to the playoff champion at the end of each season. At its inception, the NHL had four teams—all in Canada, the league expanded to the United States in 1924, when the Boston Bruins joined, and has since consisted of American and Canadian teams. After a labour-management dispute that led to the cancellation of the entire 2004–05 season, in 2009, the NHL enjoyed record highs in terms of sponsorships and television audiences. The league draws many highly skilled players from all over the world, canadians have historically constituted the majority of the players in the league, with an increasing percentage of American and European players in recent seasons. The National Hockey League was established in 1917 as the successor to the National Hockey Association, founded in 1909, the NHA began play one year with seven teams in Ontario and Quebec, and was one of the first major leagues in professional ice hockey.

Toronto won the first NHL title, and defeated the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association for the 1918 Stanley Cup. The Canadiens won the title in 1919, however their Stanley Cup Final against the PCHAs Seattle Metropolitans was abandoned as a result of the Spanish Flu epidemic.

The National Hockey League embarked on rapid expansion in the 1920s, adding the Montreal Maroons, the Bruins were the first American team in the league. The New York Americans began play in 1925 after purchasing the assets of the Hamilton Tigers, the New York Rangers were added in 1926.

Toronto St. Patricks
The Toronto St. Patricks were a professional mens ice hockey team which began playing in the National Hockey League in 1919. The Toronto NHL franchise had previously held by the Arena Company. The rights to the Toronto franchise was purchased by a group of investors with links to a club called the St. Patricks. The new owners renamed the NHL franchise after the amateur club, the name remained until 1927, when the franchise was sold to a partnership of Conn Smythe and other Torontonian investors and renamed the Toronto Maple Leafs. The St. Pats organization had operated amateur hockey clubs in the Toronto area since the first decade of the 1900s, including the senior amateur St. Patricks team in the Ontario Hockey Association. The Toronto franchise of the National Hockey League, since the NHLs founding in 1917, had operated by the Arena Company. This temporary franchise won the Stanley Cup in 1918 and this new organization was duly admitted to the NHL as a full member in good standing, touching off a new round of litigation with Livingstone which forced the Arenas to unload most of their stars.
They only won five games in 1918-19, and were forced to suspend operations in February, Livingstone won a $20,000 judgment against the Arena Company, which declared bankruptcy to avoid paying the bill. Before the 1919–20 season, general manager Charlie Querrie learned that the Arena Company wanted to sell, as an interim measure, Querrie changed the team name to the Tecumsehs on December 7,1919. The following day, Querrie reached agreement with the owners of the amateur St. Patricks club to purchase the franchise, frank Heffernan was named as manager. On December 13,1919, the NHL transferred the Toronto franchise to the Querrie-St. Patricks group, for the fee of $5,000. The incorporation date of the club was December 22,1919, and listed Fred Hambly, Percy Hambly, Paul Ciceri and Querrie with 99 shares each, and Richard Greer with 4 shares. This move was possible because the Arena Hockey Club was a self-contained corporation, with the poor performance of the previous season, and the turnover in franchise management, the franchise essentially started over.
The club improved to second and third-place finishes in the halves of the schedule, in 1920–21, the club placed second and first in the schedule halves, enough to make a playoff appearance. Unfortunately, the Super Six of Ottawa would dominate the club 7–0 in a total goals playoff. The experience would be helpful in the season, however. In the 1921–22 season, the St. Pats made their first, after placing second in the league standings, the club upset first place Ottawa to win the NHL championship and face Vancouver in the final. A fifth and deciding game five was necessary in this series to determine who would win the Cup, after Vancouver won game one, 4–3, Babe Dye scored 4,50 into overtime of game two to give Toronto a 2–1 win
He was the only player banned from the NHL for life, as a result of his attack on a referee in 1927. After his eviction from the NHL, Coutu played a total of four years in the Canadian-American Hockey League and American Hockey Association, coached the C-AHLs Providence Reds. Billy Coutus last name is incorrectly spelled Couture, an error which appears in many NHL history books and, for a time. Several hockey history books, including The Hockey News Habs Heroes by Ken Campbell incorrectly attribute his name to a photograph of teammate Louis Berlinguette and he and his family pronounced their name Koochee, which was sometimes confused with Couture. Howie Morenz played with Coutu on the Canadiens, Coutu turned professional with the Canadiens in 1916–17, the last season of the NHA. He stayed with the Canadiens when the new NHL formed for 1917–18, during the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1919, Coutu and four other teammates contracted influenza and were hospitalized. The 1919 Stanley Cup series was cancelled,9, Coutu was named Canadiens captain in 1925-26, replacing Sprague Cleghorn.
After the 1925–26 NHL season, Coutu was deemed expendable and traded to the Boston Bruins in exchange for defenceman Amby Moran who ultimately played just 12 games for the Canadiens, during his first practice with the Bruins, Coutu body-slammed Eddie Shore. Coutus forehead hit Shores skull, severing Shores ear, Shore visited several doctors who wanted to amputate the ear, but finally found one who sewed it back on. After refusing anaesthetic, Shore used a mirror to watch the doctor sew the ear back on, Shore claimed Coutu used his hockey stick to cut off the ear, and Coutu was fined $50, Shore recanted and Coutus money was refunded. As a result, he was expelled from the NHL for life, on October 8,1929, the suspension was lifted allowing Coutu to play in minor professional leagues, where he played into his late 30s with Minneapolis and coached for several years.
