Stewart is listed at center in the box score and Phillips at RW, so it's hard to say if this isn't perhaps a misprint.

Here's this one:

Quote:
Babe Siebert, who used to lay about him with a vigorous stick in a Maroon jersey, and take great pleasure in spreading Ranger players on the ice or bouncing them off the barriers, is now lining up with the Rangers, ready to ride against his former comrades.

Nels Stewart, another former Maroon, is skating for the Boston Bruins. Eddie Gerard, who managed the hapless Americans for two seasons, has returned to the the Maroon post he held before he came to New York. Bullet Joe Simpson, a dashing figure in other years, is returning to the big league of hockey as manager of the star-spangled Americans, proving that he still has his old courage even if he has lost his old speed.
Unfortunately, this last one is a perfect example of why putting quotes from stubs into bios is a big no-no, so it's good that you were cautious here, BC.
