Predators coach sees 'groundhog day' season ahead

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Predators coach Barry Trotz says the lockout-shortened season will feel like groundhog day for players once the NHL resumes play with the constant travel and playing. He also says shame on anyone not ready because the league has had plenty of time to prepare.

Trotz talked to reporters Tuesday at the team's practice facility where some of the Predators practiced for a second straight day after the agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement. Forward Colin Wilson and Brandon Yip joined their teammates with more expected in coming days.

Their coach watched them briefly. Trotz also says he talked to a few briefly because ignoring them before the new deal is finalized would be rude.

An abbreviated training camp is expected to start as early as Saturday.
