Interesting tidbit about Dolly Swift that I accidentally found in the Gazette:

Assuming this phrase wasn't being used rhetorically, it's pretty remarkable that he could step in after two years out of skates and still be effective. He scored 2 of Quebec's 3 goals his first game back and was the only player on the team singled out for effectiveness; he ended up with 11 goals in 8 games that season.

Anyone know why he left the game for 3 seasons?
