Very good point. Yes, that's a possible explanation. I happen to be aware of a case like this in the 1998 IIHF Super Cup, so it's anything but unthinkable.
A check of the appropriate rules that applied during the 1961-62 season might shed some light on the question. Also this happened at Christmas so getting a call-up in time for the game might have been an issue.
