Wait, what?

I'm going to guess the bolded are typos.

So the likely answer is, he did play "some" forward that season, perhaps about 10 games, and 6 on D, which would take them to the "perfect" number of 492. In any case, that wouldn't make him a good answer for this thread... there are much better ones.
They also might have dressed 7 defensemen for a few games.
