Changes were made by the league with regards to infractions. Hence, a minor penalty was to be given for holding, tripping or loafing offside when the goal is not in danger. Players were to be warned once and for every succeeding offense be fined $2.00. It was decided to play six-man hockey until February 1st and seven-man hockey thereafter.
Despite losing Dubby Kerr who moved west, the Senators remained a powerful team adding two new faces who were to star for many years. Harry(Punch) Broadbent started on the forward line with Jack Darragh and Skene Ronan, while Clint Benedict relieved LeSueur in goal from time to time. Broadbent looked impressive in the game against the Canadiens on January 4th, scoring three goals when the Senators defeated the Flying Frenchmen 7-3. The Sens ended up third with 9 wins and 11 losses, behind Quebec and the ever powerful Wanderers.
Marty gained his first notoriety with Queen's University, a team that challenged the Silver Seven in 1906. Ottawa's great centre, Frank McGee, found himself playing against Walsh. Queen's lost, but Walsh made such a fine impression that Ottawa tried to sign him after McGee retired. He joined Ottawa two years later and in five seasons as a Senator, played 59 games and scored 135 goals. Among his feats is a 10-goal game against Port Arthur. He died in Gravenhurst, Ontario, in 1915.
