Devan Dubnyk picked up 'bad habits' in Edmonton: Barry Trotz

Devan Dubnyk has made one start for the Nashville Predators since being traded by the Edmonton Oilers back on Jan. 15, allowing five goals on 29 shots in a 5-4 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. 

According to head coach Barry Trotz, it may take some time before Dubnyk gets an extended run in the Predators' net.

“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,” 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.”

Carter Hutton was getting the majority of the team's starts since the trade. Nashville's next game is Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks, and a starter has yet to be named.
