Montreal Forum, 1924-1996

Montreal Forum

Location: Montreal, Quebec
Dates: November 29, 1924-March 11, 1996
Total games:
Total goals:


The Montreal Forum was originally the home of the Montreal Maroons, from 1924 until they disbanded in 1938. However, the first game in 1924 was a home game for the Montreal Canadiens against the Toronto St. Patricks. The Canadiens moved into the Forum from Mount Royal Arena in 1926, until moving to Bell Centre in 1996.

Counting these goals was a bit more complicated because of the period from 1926-1938 when the Canadiens and Maroons played there against each other. Out of my own interest, I have listed how many times a Canadiens or Maroons player scored during an away game against the other team.

As is usually the case with an Original Six arena, the highest-scoring player who never played for the Canadiens or the Maroons is Gordie Howe, with 58.

(This list is not yet complete. Someday!)
