Teaching a 5 yr old to skate...

My 5 year old son is learning to skate a couple of questions....

1. In my hockey days I seem to recall a "myth" that the best hockey skaters learned to skate on figure skates first. Is this correct?, he is still using skate hire figure skates at the moment but I want to get him some skates so he gets some confort and a consistent grind but do I get figure or hockey skates?

2. Would inline roller skates help him learn ice skating? Clearly inline skates will help practise hockey skills once he can skate but is it better to stick to ice for now?
