I have never come across that reference. He has played most of his career on defense by past research I've seen before. Certainly he has played a lot of positions:

he quickly established himself as a versatile and aggressive player. Starting out as a rover in the seven-man game, he moved to all forward positions, and then moved back on defense.

A defenseman, Goheen was the master of the on-goal rush - a defensive style of hockey that would not be seen again until the arrival of Eddy Shore in the 1930ís and later by Bobby Orr in the 1960ís. A man ahead of his time, Goheen led the Americans in their quest for a medal with a 7-0 victory over Sweden, a 16-0 defeat of Czechoslovakia, and a 29-0 whitewash of Switzerland.
