Organize Hockey in the early 20th century was far cry from what we know today. The game was played in halves, there were 6 skaters per side and minor penalties were 3 minutes long. Players play positions such as Rover, Center Point and Point and overtime may or may not end with sudden death. Leagues come and go frequently and players follow suit. Vezina, Ross and Patrick weren't just trophies-they were stars of the day. Hockey pants were generally white and sweaters were carryover from the not-so-distant past where it was necessary as games were played outdoors. Other equipment was fairly sparse. The Stanley Cup was challenge trophy contest by professional, semi-pro, independent and amateur squads alike. In December of 1909, as result of a dispute over gate fees which caused the Eastern Canada Hockey Association to dissolve and for its members to go their separate ways, two new leagues-national Hockey Association and Canadian Hockey Association were form. CHA would fold only two weeks into its inaugural season and its survivors would join NHA. While NHA would eventually go on to become the NHL, it's humble beginnings include franchises in Cobalt, Haileybury and Renfrew, Ontario, games played in curling rinks and a team called Les Canadiens conceived to attract the interest of the Francophone population of Montreal. I've had to use a fair amount of creative license on these teams as stats and other information is incomplete at best and practically non-existent at worst. Hope you enjoy. It The 1910 NHA season kicks off in January following the collapse of CHA and absorption of the Ottawa and Montreal Shamrocks franchise. Ottawa was the reigning Stanley Cup holder and had just defended the Cup against challenge from Galt Pros of the Ontario Professional Hockey League. Just days after their first NHA game, Ottawa again defend Cup against Edmonton Pros, independent team formerly of the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association. Montreal Wanderers would take first League championship with an 11-1 record and with it possession of the Stanley Cup. Following the season, the Wanderers would accept their first challenge, defeating the OPHLs Berlin Dutchmen. Newsy Lalonde, who would split his time between Les Canadiens and Renfrew Creamery Kings, led the circuit in scoring with 38 goals in just 11 games. Riley Hern of Wanderers was the league's top goaltender with 11 wins and 3. 40 GAA. NHA-Cobalt Silver Kings, Haileybury Comets, Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Shamrocks, Montreal Wanderers, Ottawa Senators, Renfrew Creamery Kings, OPHL-Berlin Dutchmen, Brantford Indians, Galt Pros, Waterloo Colts, CoachMac, thanks for compliments-mean lot coming from someone who has spent so much time in NOSE and TM.

As early adopters of the program, weve experienced firsthand how Talk Today can help reduce stigma and normalize conversations about Mental Health around the rink and in the community, says NOJHL Commissioner Rob Mazzuca. Mental Health should no longer be a taboo subject in sports and the expansion of Talk Today across CJHL will help raise awareness and provide resources to players who need it.

National Hockey Association, officially National Hockey Association of Canada limit, was professional ice hockey organization with teams in Ontario and Quebec, Canada. It is direct predecessor to today's National Hockey League. Founded in 1909 by Ambrose o'brien, NHA introduced'six-man hockey' by removing the 'rover' position in 1911. During its lifetime, League cop with competition for players with rival Pacific Coast Hockey Association, enlistment of players for World War I and disagreements between owners. Disagreements between owners came to a head in 1917, when NHA suspended operations in order to get rid of unwanted owner. Remaining NHA team owners started NHL in parallel as a temporary measure, to continue play while negotiations go on with Livingstone and other lawsuits are pending. A year later, after no progress was reached with Livingstone, other NHA owners decided to permanently suspend NHA. NHA's rules, constitution and trophies were continued in the NHL. In November 1909, Eastern Canada Hockey Association, holder of the Stanley Cup and ostensibly pre-eminent ice Hockey League, was in the midst of a dispute. The Montreal Wanderers team of ECHA had been bought by P. J. Doran, owner of Jubilee Rink in Montreal and he intended to move the team's games there. Jubilee was smaller than Wanderers' current rink, Montreal Arena, which mean visiting teams would earn less on their trips to play Wanderers. On November 25 1909, other teams in the League disband ECHA and form new Canadian Hockey Association, which excludes Wanderers. At the same time, Ambrose o'brien of Renfrew, Ontario-scion of a prosperous silver mine owner and founder of the Renfrew Creamery Kings ice Hockey team-was seeking admission to ECHA so as to be able to contest the Stanley Cup. The team had applied to Stanley Cup trustees as Champions of the Federal League, but had been reject. At November 25 CHA founding meeting, held at Windsor Hotel in Montreal, o'brien applied to join CHA but his application was reject. Sitting in the lobby of the Hotel after the CHA meeting, o'brien met Jimmy Gardner of Wanderers, whose team had also been rejected by CHA. Together, they decide to form their own League, National Hockey Association. With Cobalt and Haileybury, two other teams controlled by O' Brien, NHA was founded on December 2 1909 at a private meeting at 300 Saint Jacques Street in Montreal, and adopted the constitution of ECHA. At the same time, to build rivalry and capture francophone interest in Montreal, o'brien and Gardner conceived of creating a team consisting of francophone players, to be managed by francophones. 'Les Canadiens', known today as Montreal Canadiens, were admitted on December 4 1909 to be managed by Jack Laviolette, but owned by o'brien, on understanding ownership was to be transferred to francophone sportsmen as soon as practicable.
