Before Lexan, there was a product called Herculite, that replaced the wire mesh above the boards in hockey rinks.

Name the first use in the NHL. What arena, and what year ?

Bonus question. Before the advent of modern plastic facings on the boards, what were the boards made of ? As in, what kind of material, by name ? I'm talkng about the era before the Second World War.
