New coach using NHL stoppage to study up on his Predators

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) John Hynes has only been head coach of the Nashville Predators since early January, so he's trying to make up for some lost time with the NHL paused for the coronavirus pandemic and also make sure they're ready whenever hockey resumes.

A big part of that has been getting to know each of his Predators much, much better.

"We've gone through every single player," Hynes told reporters Monday. "We've got a written report on everyone's strengths, weaknesses, areas of improvement, what type of person they are, what type of player they are, how they fit in our culture. We've done an extensive evaluation collectively as a group on our players."
