Instead of dispatching a rank-and-file employee or an intern to the Nashville International Airport armed with a sign that said, “Svatos,” Nashville Predators Head Coach Barry Trotz was the one who drove across town to pick up Marek Svatos, the team’s newest addition, when he landed in Music City at midnight.

A head coach picking up a new player from the airport is a surprise, but doing it for a flight that landed at midnight really left an impression on Svatos. *

“It was kind of weird, coach picking up a player,” Svatos said. “That shows that he cares about the players.”

Great article from Jim Diamond getting Svatos reaction to being claimed on waivers and also picking up on one of those extra little things Trotz does behind the scenes that are so often overlooked by the public, but mean a lot to the players.
