The ’21-’22 Hamilton Tigers were one of just four teams in the league at the time. Just think about what the game was like back in the early 1900s. Fascinating.

1st Round:

Swept by 24th-seeded ’07-’08 Florida Panthers, 4-0

The coaching system was a little different that what we’re used to. Joe Malone fulfilled the role of Player/Manager. The Tigers posted a 7-17-0 record. Do the math, they finished with 14 points, which was dead last, out of four teams, in the league, behind the Ottawa Senators, Toronto St. Patricks and Montreal Canadiens. The Tigers finished third in goals for with 88 (3.67/game) and last in goals against with 105 (4.38/game). Hockey Reference ranked the Tigers’ strength of schedule as the toughest in the league, and their SRS rating system had them ranked as the worst team in the league. The ’21-’22 Hamilton Tigers’ SRS rating (-0.53) ranks third in the Tigers’ history, of course they only existed for five years. Back in these days, the top two teams face off to decide who wins the Cup and as the Tigers finished fourth, they had no postseason.

Malone, along with being a Player/Manager, was the team’s leading scorer and the team’s leading goal-scorer. The Hall of Famer posted 31 points in the 24 games. Defenseman Leo Reise was second in points with 23 and Goldie Prodger was third with 21. Malone’s 24 goals were among league leaders. Prodger was second on the team in goals with 15 and Mickey Roach was third with 14. Reise posted a team-high 14 assists. Cully Wilson was second with nine and Malon was third with seven. The Tigers’ goaltender was Howard Lockhart. He appeared in every game for Hamilton and posted a 4.39 goals against average. However, 32-year-old defenseman Harry Mummery made one appearance in net for the Tigers and actually earned a win after allowing just two goals in his 50 minutes in goal.

Up next is the #42 seed, the ’25-’26 Pittsburgh Pirates!
