During his first season in Montréal, after playing 3 years in Pittsburgh, Pierre Larouche comments on an individual practice held with Habs' assistant coach, Claude Ruel, which basically consisted of skating with a puck while being yelled "Skate!  Skate! Both hands on the stick!  Head Up!":

"It was great. It was the first time, in 4 years with the pros, that I was given practical advice. Sure, NHL players should know to hold their stick with both hands and keep their head up but no matter how experienced he is, it's a good reminder. In Pittsburgh, they never told me that."

-- Pierre Larouche -  April 1978

So, in other words, Claude Ruel is the father of scientific hockey...?
