Trotz Says Dubnyk Picked-Up Bad Habits In Edmonton

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

The Predators traded forward Matt Henrdicks to Edmonton to bolster their goaltending situation on Jan. 15, but were underwhelmed by the condition of their new acquisition’s game.

“We got Devan from Edmonton, and what we realized very quickly was that Devan has a lot of… I’ll say bad habits he’s picked up this year,” Predators coach Barry Trotz told Nashville radio station 94.9 Game2 on Wednesday. “We started him at home, and you could really see he was out of sync in his game, so we wanted to spend some time with him working with [goaltending coach] Mitch Korn, just being able to get his game in order.”
