C/D - Skene Ronan

He went on to three other top-10 season finishes in goals and a Stanley Cup. Expect to see him dress for a few games this series.

Ronan, like many of the Millionaires, was quickly signed up by another professional team when the O'Brien's closed their franchise. In 1912 he went to play for the Ottawa Senators as a forward, and became a top scorer in the league, with 35 goals in 18 games.

He went on to play for the Canadiens, and was part of the team when they won the Stanley Cup in 1916. He also played seasons with the Montreal Shamrocks in 1915, and the Toronto Arenas.
