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?
