Trent Whitfield is serving as a veteran presence on the AHL Providence Bruins.

Veterans like Whitfield, who is 35, are always helpful in a developmental league like the AHL, but that's especially true this season. The AHL is currently the home of plenty of young players that might end up in the NHL when the lockout ends. "The lack of an [NHL] training camp was disappointing for me, but it was probably even more so for the younger guys that have only been once or twice if at all," said Whitfield. "In essence this whole first half [of the AHL season] or however long it takes for the NHL to get-going it a big tryout period for guys." Whitfield sees himself as a potential buffer between the coaches and younger players. He's also interested in becoming a coach when his playing career is over, but he hopes that transition is still a few seasons away.
