- A Garry Peters played 13 games. B Bryan Watson played 8 games. C Ernie Walkey was dressed, but did not play in the regular season. All 3 players spent most of season in the minors, but name was put on the Stanley Cup. None of 3 players played in the playoff, or officially qualify to on the cup.
- When Toronto won the Stanley Cup in 1962, 1963, 1964 they took up more room then allowed to engraved their winning members names on it. So when Montreal won the Stanley Cup, the ring was finished off with 32 members. If the ring had been engraved correctly in 1964–65. There would have been more than enough room to included all 27 members of Montreal Canadiens 1965-66 with their full first and last names, and non-playing positions.
