McGill University applied to join the league but was turned down.

The use of netting for the goal was demonstrated with a model produced by Frank Stocking, goalkeeper of the Quebec club at the annual meeting. After an exhibition game between the Shamrocks and Victorias, the use of goal nets was approved for league play, and used for the season. The netting connected the two upright posts, but there was no crossbar across the top.

The use of hockey gloves was quite common and shin guards were now mostly in use inside the stockings though some players still used the old style outside the stockings.

Season[edit]

Star rover Graham Drinkwater retired from the Victorias before the season.

Highlights[edit]

The Shamrocks won the championship losing only one game, and that, after the league championship was decided. This was the second year in a row for the Shamrocks, who were a mediocre team before this stretch of success and would return to it the next year.
