Notably, the team scored only 49 goals that year, meaning Herbert had a hand in 49% of his team's goals; the Bruins' second-highest scorer had 8 points.
The following year he teamed full-time with Carson Cooper to form the deadliest scoring duo in the NHL. They both tied for third in the NHL points race, behind only Nels Stewart and Cy Denneny.
He faded a bit after that, but did not disappear: he tied for 11th in scoring in 1926/27, for 16th in 1927/28 and 23rd in 1928/29. He was a very hard-nosed player with a temper, a fact often overlooked because he played with men such as Eddie Shore, Sprague Cleghornn and Lionel Hitchman, who could make most anyone seem a *****cat.
