You believe in time travel or just mean if he would have been born back then and started playing hockey? If it's the latter, dont you think he would have had to do with the training and other surroundings that where available then? If he had been born in sweden 1910 he probably would'nt have played hockey at all.
Of course the talent pool is bigger now, but that's another story that often is discussed in the History of Hockey-subforum here at HFBoards.
