He received barely any All-Star recognition from 1930-31 (first year of official records) to 1933-34, then finished 3rd in 1934-35 before winning his second Cup that year.

Or am I looking too much into it?
Connell only played 1 game the season before. Perhaps that is what the comeback reference is to.
