Bastian Baker used to dread being in the same building as Roman Josi.
Growing up in Switzerland a decade ago, Baker and Josi played hockey against one another as youths, and it turns out the Nashville Predators captain was quite good on the ice back then, too.
"We used to wish that he would not show up, so we'd have a chance to win," Baker humorously recalled. "We would be like, 'Hey, is Josi here tonight or not?' And then it would be, 'I think he's playing with the adults tonight,' and we're like, "Oh yeah, maybe we can beat them today.'"
My, how things have changed.
