The Toronto 228th Battalion (NHA) was an ice hockey team, composed entirely of troops in the 228th (Northern Fusiliers) Battalion, CEF of the Canadian Army, in the National Hockey Association (fore-runner to the modern NHL) for the 1916–17 season. The Battalion assumed the place of the former Toronto Shamrocks franchise, which had been dormant since the end of the 1914-15 season, and played out of the Mutual Street Arena. The NHA then sued the military for $3000 and some game revenues due to the team leaving the league. This lawsuit was not successful.

  • The Toronto 228th Battalion (NHA) was an ice hockey team, composed entirely of troops in the 228th (Northern Fusiliers) Battalion, CEF of the Canadian Army, in the National Hockey Association (fore-runner to the modern NHL) for the 1916–17 season. The Battalion assumed the place of the former Toronto Shamrocks franchise, which had been dormant since the end of the 1914-15 season, and played out of the Mutual Street Arena. Also known as the Northern Fusiliers, the team played wearing khaki military uniforms and was the league's most popular and highest scoring club until the regiment was ordered overseas in February 1917 and the team was forced to withdraw. A scandal ensued when several stars were subsequently discharged and alleged they had been promised commissions solely to play hockey. The NHA then sued the military for $3000 and some game revenues due to the team leaving the league. This lawsuit was not successful. (en)
