Playing Another Position

This is a topic that resurface regulary touching players and teams for different eras.
This thread will serve to compile reports of players playing a position other than the one they are known for.

1937-38 Season, Earl Seibert played RW while Mill MacKenzie played forward:

H-R has the Seibert switch but not Mackenzie.

Eddie Shore Playing Center

Interesting piece about Eddie Shore being used by Art Ross as a center on faceoffs.

Punch Imlach caused a bit of a stir in the mid sixties using defensemen in a similar role. Led to the NHL introducing the Faceoff Interference penalty. Almost thirty years earlier the same tactic was used.

Bobby Hull as well having played Center in Jr & amateur, then occasionally late in his career while in Winnipeg. Though a Winger, it was quite apparent at times that he was innately thinking like a Center. The way he'd arc & play the entire surface beyond his prescribed lanes, use his team mates & opposition as blinds.

I think Sami Kapanen played every position at some point, except the goalie.
