QUEBEC HOCKEY CLUB.

THE QUEBEC HOCKEY TEAM.

THE Quebec Hockey Club is one of the oldest in Canada, having been in existence for upwards of twenty years.

It was one of the clubs which formed the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada and played under the old challenge system before the present series was introduced.

The Quebec Club was the first to send a team across the border to teach the Americans' this fine Canadian game. This team played two exhibition matches in Baltimore, Md., in 1895, and the scientific play of the Canadians won unstinted praise from the spectators.

In 1896 its team was the only one to defeat the famous "Victorias," of Winnipeg, during that club’s victorious tour, thus upholding the prestige of the east.
