Goes from being named the best goalie in the league during his first season to awful numbers in his second season as the Keystones sag to last place in the league and eventually fold in 1904 after Hern moves on.

Hern also played in a 5 game exhibition at the end of the 1902 season. I believe it was against other American teams, which probably wasn't the strongest level of competition at this time.

Houghton-Portage played 4 more games in 1906 which LoH doesn't give Hern credit for. I would assume this means a backup played and they went 4-0.

Hern also had a great year statistically in 1904, but it was during a series of exhibitions as Houghton-Portage had a great team with paid pros, but no league to accept them.

As a result, the two teams had nowhere to go but to the proposed professional league.
