Yeah, that occured to me, as well. There's a good chance that Boucher at least learned the basics right from the source. One thing that interests me is Hooley Smith, who played for Ottawa, but was evidently already a fine hook-checker when he was playing for the Granites. Being from Toronto, it's not clear to me where Smith would have picked up the art as a junior/senior league player.
