Apparently that is the story how the stick originally got the curve, and I THINK it was Boom Boom Geffrion who actually first experimented with this and his wicked slapshot, though I could definately be wrong.
Stan Mikitia was the first to use a curved blade. I was watching the Legends of Hockey and Bobby Hull was telling the story. Appreantly Stan had this stick that he hated so he was leaning on it, only problem was he wasn't big enough weight wise to snap it. He then stuck the blade onder the bench door and pulled up on it giving the blade a nasty curve. He went out on the ice and started flipping pucks into the net. The whole time Hull thought Stan had gone off the deep end.
So according to Bobby Hull that how the whole curved blade started.
