i have seen some goals on HSP which have more than 2 assists.
all of those were in very old games, and i assumed they were just errors on HSP, but i found in a newspaper goals where up to 4a were given.

as they passed the puck around before setting up the defenceman
. Gottselig's goal was aided by March, Seibert and Thompson.
bold seems to indicate that such passing was not standard, and justified giving 4a.
ottawa citizen reported the same assists, but did not describe the play.
i did not find any record in papers of assists for that '20 ottawa vs montreal game.
