The NAHL: New York Wanderers

The New York City amateur hockey league called off the 1917/18 season amid disputes and the war. This did not prevent amateur hockey from being played, but rather ad hoc games. For example, they played the Toronto St. Patricks who were runner up in the 1916/17 Ontario Hockey Association. From December through most of January, the Wanderers defeated many of the best Canadian teams. Cornelius Fellowes decided to join with Roy Schooley and George Brown when they created the National Amateur Hockey League. He brought his team, the New York Wanderers, and sponsored the challenge cup. The Cornelius Fellowes challenge cup was presented to the NAHL and USAHA champions until 1926, when the league collapsed.
