It may not be too much longer before Barry Trotz finds a new home.
TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger is reporting that the former Nashville Predators head coach was in Washington on Tuesday meeting with Capitals owner Ted Leonsis and president Dick Patrick.
The Capitals missed the playoffs for the first time in six seasons, leading the club to fire bench boss Adam Oates. The Capitals also did not renew the contract of general manager George McPhee following the season.
Trotz, 51, was fired by the Predators after 15 seasons in Nashville; the only coach in the franchise's history.
The Vancouver Canucks are also rumoured to be interested in Trotz.
