The Soviet Union had come into existence in 1922.

In 1917 – Harry Cameron of the Toronto Arenas becomes the first defenseman to score four goals in an NHL game as the Arenas – now the Maple Leafs – defeated the Montreal Canadiens  7-5. It was the first game ever between the two teams and just the sixth game in NHL history.
