I imagine they also would've wanted him so that they had someone that could play hockey without having to be taught.

Seems a little odd if he's playing Gordie though. I don't think that he or Kathleen Robertson are old enough to play the Howes at that point.

EDIT: Yeah. Shanks is 42 right now according to wikipedia, and if this is the story of Gordie playing with his sons, he was around 50 at the time. and Shanks doesn't exactly look older than early 40s.
