The NAHL: Boston Arena Hockey Club

The Boston Arenas formed out of the remaining amateur who did not go to war and refused to accept suspension of the league. For at least the past ten years, the Boston Amateur League winner would face-off against New York winner. While New York collectively called off a sanctioned league, Boston’s teams slowly dropped out until only the Boston Arenas remained. The team arranged challenges the First Naval District, Canadian teams and local college teams on an ad hoc basis until the National Amateur Hockey League formed in January 1918.
