The 1937–38 Montreal Canadiens season was the team's 29th season of play. The Canadiens placed third in the Canadian Division and qualified for the playoffs. Montreal met and lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Chicago Black Hawks in the quarter-finals.


Regular seasonEdit

A Morenz Benefit All-Star game was held at the Forum on November 2, 1937. 8,683 fans attended, contributing $11,447 to a total pot of over $20,000 for Howie Morenz's family.[1]

This was the last season for Pit Lepine, Aurel Joliat and Marty Burke. Burke had returned from Chicago in a trade for Bill McKenzie.
