"Indian" Joe Nolan was a minor-league hockey player in the Eastern Hockey League with the Clinton Comets and later with the Johnstown Jets. The Jets were the inspiration for the 1977 movie "Slap Shot" starring Paul Newman where Joe appears as "Clarence 'Screaming Buffalo' Swamptown," the head-dress wearing oldtimer brought in to try and help the Bulldogs defeat the Chiefs in the final game. Indian Joe retired from the EHL and returned to Clinton, New York where he died in the early 1990s.
