In an effort to freeze out the Montreal Wanderers, the ECHA disbanded in December 1909 and a new league called the Canadian Hockey Association (CHA) was formed, deliberately designed to exclude the Wanderers, who then joined the newly formed National Hockey Association (NHA). The CHA survived only a few weeks of play in January 1910 before two teams jumped to the new National Hockey Association (NHA).
