In large part it had to do with the up and down nature of scoring league wide and on his team.

Here are the goals per game averages from the first 5 years of his PCHA career from the Hockey Compendium, and his teams totals for GF and assists. I'll throw in the NHA/NHL for comparison.

YearPCHA GPGTeam GFTeam AssistsNHA/NHL GPG

1917-186.9070439.93
1918-195.8272458.22

Vancouver was the top team in GF all 5 years.

Certainly his broken ankle bone in 15-16 contributed to an off year. His broken jaw in 18-19 left a huge mark on the PCHA landscape for years to come, starting with that years playoff race.

He didn't miss that many actual games, but one does have to wonder how much time he spent as a spare.
