He played only 20 minutes of the game and did not allow a goal. Forced to retire due to turberculosis, Vezina would pass away four months later.

In order to compile a 'Who's Who' section in the National Hockey League's Guide and Record Book, players were asked to provide information on various topics, including their minor hockey career, accomplishments in other sports, ancestry, military service, and off-season employment.
