• In a major rule change, in an effort to increase scoring, forward passing was now allowed in the offensive zone, not just in the defensive and neutral zones.

• On January 7, Clint Benedict becomes the first goalie in NHL history to wear a protective face mask. He wore the mask for five games to protect a broken nose.

• Behind Cooney Weiland's record-setting 73 points, the Boston Bruins finished with a record of 38 wins, 5 losses and one tie. The .875 win percentage is a record that still stands today.
