1922-23 NHL season
The 1922-23 NHL season was the sixth season of the National Hockey League.
At the start of the season, Newsy Lalonde found himself moving west as the Montreal Canadiens traded him to the Saskatoon Sheiks of the Western Canada Hockey League for a rising young star named Aurel Joliat. Joliat would help the Habs win the second playoff spot over the St. Patricks.

Stanley Cup Playoffs
The playoffs out east was won by the Senators, who had won the series despite the dirty play of several Montreal players in the first game and being down 2-0 in the second. Out west, the Pacific Coast Hockey Association abandoned seven-man hockey in favor of the six-man rules used in the NHL and the Western Canada Hockey League. This allowed the PCHA and the WCHL to play interleague games. In the end, the newly renamed Vancouver Maroons won the PCHA championship and the Edmonton Eskimos won the WCHL championship.
The Stanley Cup Finals this year was played out west, in Vancouver. There, the WCHL champions received the privilege of battling the winner between Ottawa and Vancouver. In the end, Ottawa prevailed over both Western opponents to win the Silver Cup.
