One source says his actual first name was Vernor, not Vernon … Forbes, then 33 and playing goal for the CAHL New Haven Eagles, filled in for an injured Wilf Cude in the Quaker nets in January 1931 … Call to the Quakers was on a loan basis with the New York Americans … Hockey career got its start with the Toronto Aura Lee and Goodyears teams, starting in 1916-17 … First played in the NHL with the Toronto St. Pats in 1919-20 and was in the NHL steadily through 1926-27, playing for the St. Pats (1919-22), Hamilton Tigers (1922-25), and New York Americans (1925-27)… After 1927-28, played mostly in the minors … At 5’ 6”, was the shorter than fellow goaltenders Wilf Cude and Joe Miller, who both stood at 5’ 9” ... Nicknamed “Jumpin’ Jackie” … Forbes got the call from the Quakers after Cude hurt his shoulder in the January 11 overtime win versus the Montreal Maroons ... Miller finished that contest for Cude but was too weak to start in Cude's place the next two games ... Stan Baumgartner of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote Forbes was "here, there, and everywhere," performing "sensationally" in the 2-1 Quaker loss at home to the Montreal Canadiens January 13 ... Baumgartner said Forbes inspired the Quakers that night, shouting words of encouragement ... Four nights later, Forbes kept the Detroit Falcons from scoring even more in a 5-2 Quaker loss at the Arena ... Baumgartner reported Philadelphia's defense in that game was "extremely weak," but Forbes's work in goal was "splendid" ... According to lineups in the Inquirer and the Quakers' game program for January 13, Forbes wore Miller's number 1 sweater ... Returned to New Haven Eagles after his turn with the Quakers …In 1931-32, played six games with the New York Americans (2.67 GAA, 3-3-0 record), three games with the CAHL Springfield Indians, and seven games with the CAHL Bronx Tigers … Last played in NHL: one game with the 1932-33 New York Americans … Last season as a player: 1935-36, with the IHL Syracuse Stars and Rochester Cardinals (five games for each team).
