Set for milestone, Preds' Trotz guests on 'NHL Hour' @NHL
Barry Trotz, the first and only head coach in the history of the Nashville Predators, will discuss the approaching milestone of 1,000 games -- for him and the franchise -- on today's NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman. The show, which encourages fans to call in with questions, airs Thursday nights on and on Sirius XM Radio at 6 p.m., ET. 

Trotz and the Predators reach the milestone this Saturday, when they host the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET, CBC, RDS HD, FS-TN). Only three coaches in NHL history -- Al Arbour (1,500 with the Islanders), Lindy Ruff (1,080 with the Buffalo Sabres) and Bill Reay (1,012 with the Chicago Blackhawks) -- have coached more games with one team than Trotz, who was named the Predators' coach on Aug. 6, 1997.

NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman broadcasts live on Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. ET on as well as NHL Home Ice (channel 92 on XM and channel 207 on Sirius Premier -- formerly known as "The Best of XM”). The show will re-air on Sirius XM Radio, with archived shows available for download via podcast on

The show encourages fans to call in with questions. To submit questions to NHL Hour call 1-877-NHL-ON-XM (1-877-645-6696). NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman is a production of NHL Radio.
