1916-17 appears to be the season most affected by World War I and the affect is quite obviously not nearly as profound as World War 2. These are the players still in the NHA in 1916-17:

Actually, I did a little more research and Canada briefly had a military draft from 1917-1918. So probably the first season of the NHL would have been most affected. Either way, this is only a year or two out of Lehman's 20 year career.
