Roman Josi, who put together a terrific 55-point campaign in 2014-15, praised his assistant coach Phil Housley for the wisdom he's passed on to the Predators' defense core.
"He’s one of the best defenseman of all-time, and having a guy like that coach you is definitely great," Josi said of Housley, who notched 1232 points during his storied career between 1982-2003. "(Housley) knows what to do in different situations and he’s been teaching us a lot. He talks to us a lot and it’s helpful, especially for young guys. You want to get better and you want to learn from guys like him." Jun 18 - 9:47 PM
