All Nikita Filatov

from Dmitry Chesnokov at PuckDaddy,

First, about his relationship with Hitchcock:

“Actually, Hitchcock gave me a lot. I started playing better defense,” he said. “But if at practice I did something wrong, Ken was ready to immediately stop practice, call the entire team over and explain to me personally where I made a mistake.”

Q. Was it embarrassing?

FILATOV: “This is a normal process. But Hitchcock took it too far sometimes. There was an immediate whistle after something small. Or he would give instructions through the defense coach, you get an individual workout. And when we lost to Detroit (1:9), Hitchcock actually made a schedule. Every player went to him for a 10-15 minute talk.”
