In 1918, when the Montreal Arena burned down, the Canadiens moved into Jubilee Arena on a full-time basis. In the summer of 1919, Jubilee Arena also burned down, forcing the Habs to build and move into the Mount Royal Arena which opened in 1920.
Ownership of the Jubilee Rink played a significant role in the formation of the NHA in 1910. The Wanderers club had decided to move all of its home games to the rink, which they owned. As it was smaller than the Montreal Arena, the other members of the ECHA league objected as it would lower their revenues. The ECHA owners formed the CHA, without the Wanderers, who joined the NHA. However, without the Wanderers the CHA did poorly, and the CHA failed, leaving the NHA to continue.
