  • Notes 
    • Player in the position of Goaltender or Goalie for the Montreal Shamrocks, also known as the Fighting Irish. James Henry played from at least 1897-1900. In 1899 and 1900 they won the Stanley Cup twice, first against Queen's University and then against the Winnipeg Victorias. By 1909 the Shamrocks had joined with the Canadian Hockey Association and by 1911 the club folded due to political and financial difficulties. The reining Montreal hockey team would become the Montreal Canadiens.
