Old No. 7 selects:

Herb Jordan (C)

Jack McDonald (LW)


The arrival of Herb Jordan saw the perenially weak Quebec franchise climb from the depths of the standings (To be fair, the Wanderers raiding some CAHL of some of their talent helped). In Jordan's second season, where he was runner-up to the legendary Russell Bowie for the league scoring title, Quebec finished atop the league with a 7-1 mark, though didn't have the chance to challenge for the Cup since the defending champion Ottawa club withdrew from the league and took the trophy with them.

Jordan remained a good producer, and was joined by Jack McDonald in 1907. The two would prove to be good soldiers on an often weak Quebec team for several years. 1908 saw Quebec place second in total goals, thanks to Jordan and McDonald (along with the xxxxxx brothers), but they could only manage a 5-5 record. In 1909 Jordan scored in 12 games consecutively, finishing a goal behind Marty Walsh for the league scoring lead. In 1910, when Quebec was left out of the NHA, Jordan was picked up by the Renfrew all-star squad. He led them in goals, with nine through six games, but nonetheless was replaced by Newsy Lalonde for the balance of the season at that point. He played one game next season before retiring.

When Quebec was denied entry to the NHA, McDonald headed to Waterloo of the OPHL, and finished third in the scoring derby. Quebec returned to the top Canadian circuit in 1911, with McDonald leading the last-place club in scoring. The resurgent Bulldogs won their first Stanley Cup the following year, 1912. McDonald was eighth in league scoring, and led the charge in the Stanley Cup series against an overmatched Moncton outfit. McDonald bagged four goals in the opening match, and bettered that by one next time out as Quebec cruised to the Cup.

McDonald then jumped to the PCHA for one unspectacular season, before returning to the NHA with the Ontarios club, placing fourth in league scoring in 1914. The productive LW remained in the NHA/NHL up until 1922 with several different clubs.
