Old Habs story - somebodie help me with this

Long, long ago I read a true story about a young rookie who came to play on the Canadiens, probably in the 1950s, and he shocked everybody by telling his legendary veteran superstar teammates the correct way to play hockey.

I think it was in a book for children.

I'm wondering if anybody else knows this story, the guy's name, and can tell it to me completely and/or steer me to a text where it was written up. Many thanks. I have a site about Montreal stuff and would like to put something about it there.

Ed Dorohoy - Nicknamed Pistol because you never knew when he'd go off.

Came to Habs camp and started giving Richard tips on how to perform better. NHL career extended through 16 games, I think. Career minor leaguer. Nice guy according to teammates I've spoken with. Bit of a live wire.

If I'm not mistaken Brian McFarlane has shared the anecdote in his book on the Habs. Or was it Dick Irvin?

Excelled at the minor league level, both as a scorer and playmaker but at 5' 9", 150 pounds, just wasn't big enouhgh in the eyes of NHL brass.
