1920–21 NHL season

The NHL season 1920/21 was the fourth season of the National Hockey League ( NHL). The season was played in a preliminary round and a second round with ten or 14 games. The Ottawa Senators have qualified against the Toronto St. Patricks for the finals and defeated there, the Vancouver Millionaires 3-2. Thus, they defended the Stanley Cup. The Quebec Bulldogs were sold to Hamilton and competed as Hamilton Tigers. At the end of 1920 NHL president Frank Calder wanted to send two players from Ottawa to Hamilton, to compensate for the league. The player refused and remained in Ottawa. As the senator felt disadvantaged by a referee, they left under protest the ice. Montreal scored two goals in the empty goal and won the game 5:3.
