I know his older brother Reg. Hay played right wing in Senior hockey and the team won the Allan Cup. Eight year's later the younger brother George was playing with him on left wing when they won a pro league championship. I have the details of it in a book by Ron McAllister.

1. Perhaps someone is mixing up the Hay brothers. Reg. Hay definitely was a right winger in senior hockey and continued to be so when the local team turned pro. George joined his older brother's team and was playing left wing.
or
2. It is entirely possible that George had played RW for another senior team before joining his brother's great team, at which time he shifted to left wing.
or
3. Maybe the team had George on the second line RW in senior play.

More accounts of the past would be nice. For certain he was playing left wing in 1921. I'll provide book citation for that before the draft is over, if requested.
