Dunderdale played very well over the next four seasons, leading his team in scoring three times and taking home league honors in 1912-13. Victoria won the league title in 1912-13 and defeated the Stanley Cup champion Bulldogs in an exhibition series. Dunderdale scored three times in three games. In 1913-14, he scored in every one of Victoria's 15 matches and was named to the PCHA First All-Star team as a center. He held out for more money in 1915 but was brought to terms by league president XXXXX XXXXXXX. He retired as the PCHA's top career goal-scorer.

In 290 games, the speedy, highly skilled Dunderdale scored 225 goals. He is a worthy member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

McGiffin did not come out until the final period, and as usual he mixed it freely, and was chased for mixing it with Dunderdale.


McNamara and Dunderdale had a bumping match.

He conducts himself truly elegant style on the ice, being an exceptionally fast skater, a beautiful stickhandler, and a deadly shot.
