Justin Barron is already working hard to correct one of his major deficiencies

A few weeks ago, the Habs hired Adam Nicholas to fill the new position of Director of Hockey Development. The former Leafs player is now in charge of developing players' skills, more specifically skating techniques.

Nicholas wasted no time in getting to the heart of the matter. He recently spent a full practice with the Laval Rocket players to help them with their skills. On Thursday, he spent time on the ice with one of the CH's newest additions, young prospect Justin Barron.

From what we can tell, Nicholas is trying to improve Barron's skating technique.




As mentioned by Nicolas Cloutier of TVA Sports, Barron's former coach with Halifax, Jean-Jacques Daigneault, once said that Barron was skating too much on his toes backwards.


It will be interesting to see what Nicholas' contribution will do not only to Barron, but to all the players in the Montreal Canadiens system. Under the old system, no such coach was directly linked to the players. Even if they are pros, it's always good to go back to the basics and develop or improve those kinds of habits.

Thanks to Fanadians for the observation.
