Montreal Victorias
1894-95

Although the Montreal Victorias finished first in the Amateur Hockey Association (AHA) and were prepared to vie for the Cup as league champions, they were in for a rude awakening. The Stanley Cup trustees had already accepted a challenge from the 1894 champion Montreal AAA and Queen's University. In a most unusual decision, the trustees decided that if the Montreal AAA defeated Queen's University, the Victorias would be named Stanley Cup champions. The AAA did indeed win the game, 5-1, and the Victorias were crowned champions.
