Hanifin reflects on WJC, looks forward to Beanpot

Boston College freshman defenseman Noah Hanifin joined NHL Live to discuss playing for the United States at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship and to look ahead to the 63rd annual Beanpot Tournament.

Hanifin scored two points in five games at the WJC for the United States, which did not reach the medal round.

"It was a great experience," Hanifin said. "Obviously we didn't get the outcome we wanted, but just being able to play with great players every day … being able to measure myself against players around the world at such a high level was awesome. Coming back to BC I think it really helped me a lot. I think I got better over the course of that tournament. I think I gained confidence from it."

Ranked third in NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of the top North American skaters for the 2015 NHL Draft, Hanifin has three goals and 14 points in 24 games for the Eagles.

Trotz: Return to Nashville with Capitals will be 'fun'

Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz joined NHL Live to discuss the game Friday against the Nashville Predators (8 p.m. ET; NHLN). Trotz will be making his first appearance at Bridgestone Arena since coaching the Predators from 1998 to 2014.

"I think it would have been a lot more difficult if it would have happened in the first 10 or 15 games of the season because you're not in your routine totally yet and everything was so familiar," Trotz said. "I have a lot of friends that are here. I have a lot of friends in the building. I know all the security guards and all the ushers.

"I think [Friday] will be fun. It will be really fun to see faces and just get that feel that you're home, because Nashville is really my home. I'm trying to make Washington my home and that will come about. But my kids are still [in Nashville], so this is still home for me. It will be a little bit strange, and I have to get through that game, but once you get close to the game you just get behind the bench. I know for a fact it will be a game and we'll be pumped up. Bridgestone Arena is a great venue with a lot of energy.
