London will take another early era defenseman.

A hard-hitting and physical defenseman who was an important part of the Silver Seven dynasty, but his career was cut short by a badly broken leg. He was named to the 1905 unofficial all-sta team.

Arthur Moore

4 x Stanley Cup Champion (1903, 1904, 1905, 1906)
Scored Cup-winning goal in 1904

First Team All-Star (1905)

Perhaps the defense of the Ottawa Stanley Cup holders is the best on the ice today, and the men in front of the goalkeeper are ; Pulford, point, and Moore, cover-point. Both strapping big men, they do not use boarding school methods to handle the enemy as it sweeps upon them… Moore can also accomplish a little body-checking on occasion. He, too, is no gentle lamb, and many a forward can show black and blue marks decorating his anatomy to prove it. But they both played fine hockey, lifting the puck well, and are effective working at all times. A formidable pair.

Arthur Moore is this year playing point for the team and doing better work than he formerly performed at cover. Cool, accurate lifting is his forte, but Moore is likewise a very dangerous man for opposing forwards to cope with. He is probably the fastest man with the Rough Riders and a few year ago was a defense player for the Capitals lacrosse team.
