I'll just confirm that Ian Moran did play forward sometimes, more so early than late. He was also designated our emergency third goalie if memory serves...I'll have to remember that for the ATD...what's he like a 6th round pick there? early 7th?
Joel "The Answer" Kwiatkowski I think played both...
Carol Vadnais did (leaving Scott Stevens as the only 20+20/200 d-man season ever)
I thought I read one source that suggested Bryan Watson sometimes (rarely) used to play right wing, but then I could never find it again...did I just make that up? Probably...
I think one or both of those Brookbanks have been used at forward somewhat, but they aren't important enough to matter...I think fringe NHLers Marc-Andre Gragnani and Oskars Bartulis - both d-men by trade, but forwards in their roots...
