The Montreal Maroons were a professional ice hockey team from Montreal, Quebec. They played in the National Hockey League from 1924 to 1938, winning the Stanley Cup in 1926 and 1935. They were the second-to-last team to fold before the Original Six era: the NHL originally promised to restore the franchise -- which had been acquired by Philadelphia interests -- after World War II, along with that of the New York Americans, but reneged, leaving the NHL at six teams. They were also the last non-Original Six team to win the Stanley Cup until the Philadelphia Flyers in 1974. Image File history File links Maroons_alt. ...
