Well, it wasn't until 1928 that forward passes were allowed in the defensive and neutral zones, and the offensive zone the next season.

EDIT: TO be clear, it was the 1929-1930 season in which forward passes were finally allowed in the offensive zone. The season after the record was set. So the record was set when the game was essentially rugby on ice. Not modern hockey.
