Stanley Cup engraving

  • Bill MacKenzie was loaned to New York Rangers on 1935-01-29. In the Stanley Cup Semi-Finals, the Maroons defeated the Rangers, while MacKenzie played in a losing cause for the Rangers. He was included on the Stanley Cup and team picture. However, under NHL rules MacKenzie was disqualified from winning the Stanley Cup, because he was a member of the Rangers when the Maroons won it.
  • In 1934 Tommy Gorman (Manager-Coach) led the Chicago Black Hawks to the Stanley Cup. In the off-season Gorman was fired after a dispute with President/Owner Fredric McLaughlin. Montreal Maroons hired Gorman as (Manager-Coach) and he led Maroons to the Stanley Cup. He became only Manager and/or Coach to win back to back Stanley Cups with 2 different teams.
  • Montreal Maroons did not include any playoff scores in 1935.
