The 1898 Amateur Hockey Association of Canada season lasted from January 8 until March 5. Each team played 8 games, and Montreal Victorias were again first with a 8–0 record, to retain the Stanley Cup. This was their fourth-straight league championship.

ExecutiveEdit

  • J. A. Findlay, Montreal (President)
  • J. H. Dunbar, Quebec (1st. Vice-Pres.)
  • G. P. Murphy (2nd Vice-Pres.)
  • H. Wilson (Sec.-Treasurer)
  • W. Snow, E. Hinchy, E. Farwell, E. Blurty, G. Tanguay (Council)

The Ottawa Capitals applied to join the league, but were turned down because they had not won an intermediate-level championship.

SeasonEdit

HighlightsEdit

The game of February 12, 1898 between Ottawa and the Victorias was notable because Fred Chittick, the regular goal-keeper of Ottawa staged a one-man strike because he had not received his share of complimentary tickets. Ottawa played A. Cope instead and lost 9–5. The fans in attendance heckled the defence pair of Harvey Pulford and Weldy Young, and in response Mr. Young went into the crowd to attack a spectator.

From February 14 through 19th, the Shamrocks toured New York city, playing teams of the Amateur Hockey League. They played the New York Hockey Club twice and the Brooklyn Skating Club once. The Shamrocks split the two with New York 2–1 and 0–1 at the Lexington Avenue Ice Palace and defeated Brooklyn 4–3 at the Clermont Avenue Rink.

There were no playoffs as the Victorias won first place exclusively.

Stanley Cup ChallengesEdit

Victorias vs. OttawaEdit

Prior to the season, Victorias would play Ottawa Capitals of the CCHA in a single-elimination game on December 27, 1897, winning 15–2. It was originally scheduled as the first best-of-three challenge, but the series ended after the first game because the Victorias clearly was the superior team with a 15–2 victory and the Ottawa team withdrew its challenge.
