Correct, although teams had subs before this time, so I don't think it is accurate to say that starters went the full 60. Some probably did, but not all. I'm trying to remember when the powerplay was actually introduced in the PCHA. I don't think powerplays even existed for at least part of Walker's career. I'm pretty sure I found the exact season when the powerplay rules were implemented in both the PCHA and NHL and posted the information in the Dirt thread, but I'm too lazy to look for it right now.
