Niagara Falls Hockey Club 1924- 1925

The Niagara Falls Hockey Club captured the 1924 -25 Ontario Hockey Association senior championships
and advanced to the Allen Cup semi-finals. Originally slated for intermediate competition, N.F.H.C. was boosted to the senior ranks by the O.H.A. and became the first senior side to represent Niagara Falls in league play. The Club was organized by star defence player Gene Fraser and skated at the new Victoria Avenue Arena, constantly drawing 4000- 5000 fans to home games.

The superbly conditioned N.F.H.C. squad, using only eight players in most games, went undefeated in fifteen of twenty league contests. After eliminating Stratford in the first playoff round, the Club bested Peterborough in a two game total points series to take the O.H.A. senior title. In Allen Cup competition for Canadian senior honours, N.F.H.C. triumphed over O.H.A. intermediate champion Grimsby and Montreal, the Quebec amateur titleholders, before losing to Intercollegiate champion University of Toronto in the Eastern Finals.
