The 1906–07 Ottawa Hockey Club season lasted from January 3 until March 10. Ottawa placed second to the Montreal Wanderers who went through the season undefeated.

Off-seasonEdit

Frank McGee of Ottawa retired to pursue his government career.

Prior to the season, Ottawa travelled to Winnipeg for a series of exhibition games against Manitoba league teams including the Kenora Thistles, who then came east to play a challenge in Montreal.[1]

Regular seasonEdit

HighlightsEdit

A major battle took place for the game between the Senators and Wanderers on January 12. Stick work was the order of the day as Charles Spittal of Ottawa knocked Cecil Blachford in the head, Alf Smith hit Hod Stuart in the head and Harry Smith broke Ernie Johnson's nose. The Wanderers would still win, 4–2. Blachford, Johnson and Stuart all required hospitalization.

After the game, a special league meeting was called to hand out discipline, with Victorias and Wanderers wanting Spittal and Alf Smith suspended for the season. The players were not suspended, leading the league president Mr. McRobie to resign, leaving D'arcy McGee to take over as president. Ottawa had threatened to leave the league, and, under an agreement between the two teams, the Wanderers would have left the league also.

After the Kenora Thistles defeated the Wanderers for the Stanley Cup, they played an exhibition game against Ottawa on January 23. Kenora, without defenseman Art Ross, lost to Ottawa 8–3.[2]

On the next visit of the Ottawa team to Montreal, to play the Victorias, the three Ottawa players were arrested by Montreal police. Eventually Alf Smith and Spittal were fined $20 for their actions and Harry Smith was found not guilty.
