Who was hockey's first ever 200 point man?

In 1975/76 in the minor level North American Hockey League, "Gypsy" Joe Hardy scored an impressive 208 points for the Beauce Jaros out of St.Georges, Quebec. Hardy was a player-coach for the first place Jaros and the first ever professional hockey player to break the 200 point plateau. His 60 goals and 148 assists in 72 games was 48 points better than the second place scorer in the league, teammate Richard Grenier.

Since I didn't have any cards or photos of him, he signed two index cards for me TTM.
