D - Arthur Moore

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.

Much regret has been expressed for Arthur Moore personally for serlous accident, while the effect of his absence on the team’s chances is forming of much anxiety among the fans.

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.
