1899 The MacDougall - Gingras Incident

One of the early SC finals - 1899 between the Winnipeg Victorias and the Montreal Victorias was marked by the Bob MacDougall - Tony Gingras Incident. Similar to the Clarke - Kharlamov incident in the 1972 Summit Series. Unfortunately there are no videotapes to look at so the written word is what remains.

One perspective, February 26, 1935, is offered by D.A. L. MacDonald in his "Turning Back Hockey's Pages" profiles featuring Bob MacDougall:


The various versions will be explored as time allows. The profile adds insight into 1890s hockey as well. Bob MacDougall was playing elite Senior amateur hockey as a 17 year old. Very rare in any era.

Very interesting read.

Can you imagine that today....

"he hit me, and it is sore, no need to look at the injury, we aren't playing unless you do something rash"

"Oh yeah!...well if you don't get back out on the ice within 15 minutes then I'm going home!"
