Halifax also selects to be an extra skater the HHOF great amateur left winger George Richardson. He was a prolific scorer who won intercollegiate titles (1903, 1904, 1906), the OHA Senior title (1908) and the Allan Cup (1909). He was a two-time SOHA First Team All-Star (1907, 1908) and had scored three goals in Queen's 1906 Stanley Cup challenge loss, second most on the team to fellow HHOFer Marty Walsh. He died in the Great World War of 1914-1918 and is remembered as "a hero in sport and war", as the Toronto Telegram put it.

Queen's was also the Intercollegiate Hockey Union champions in 1904 and 1906.

Richardson starred at left wing for the 14th Regiment of Kingston hockey team that went on to the Ontario Hockey Association finals three consecutive years from 1907 to '09. He posted a record seven-goal game as Kingston won the OHA Senior crown, 9-7 over Stratford, in 1908.
