The 1937–38 Montreal Maroons season was the fourteenth and last season of the Montreal Maroons. The team finished in last place in the Canadian Division. The team and franchise was dissolved after the season.

Offseason[edit]

On September 24, 1937, Tommy Gorman hired King Clancy from the Toronto Maple Leafs to take over as coach of the Maroons. Clancy had retired as a player partway through the previous season, and had been acting as a 'goodwill ambassador' for the Maple Leafs organization. The Leafs did not ask for any compensation.[1]

Regular season[edit]

King Clancy's time as coach ended with his resignation on December 30, 1937. The Maroons were holding a 6–11–1 record. Gorman took over on an interim basis.[2] The team would be taken over by Tommy Gorman, who would lead them to a 6-19-5 record. The Maroons scored 101 goals (only good for 6th in the 8 team league), but allowed 149 goals (dead last) to finish dead last in their final season. The team would soon be dormant, as the backers tried to move the team to St. Louis. When that failed, the team tried to sell to a Philadelphia group, but failed due to the lack of a suitable arena. Len Peto failed to find a suitable arena by the end of the 1946-47 NHL season, as the team dissolved for good.
