1925 Hamilton Players Strike

One of the forgotten but interesting events in NHL history the 1925 Hamilton Tigers players strike before the start of the NHL Finals:

Shorty Green - 1935 profile.


The NHL - Hamilton finished first overall during the regular season with four points separating the top four teams:


The team - Billy Burch won the Hart Trophy:


March 12 & 13, 1925 - the issue - $200.00 per player to play the final. Players claim that their contract expired at the end of the regular season:



March 14, 1925- negotiations are reported as are NHL side issues, Ottawa replacing Hamilton:


March 16, the outcome. Canadiens awarded the NHL title. Hamilton Forfeits.Hamilton players fined by the NHL. Stories scattered across the page. Interesting talk about the possibility of hockey in New York City:

I wonder if they would have won the Cup if they had not gone on strike. They finished first in the NHL that year
