When Roman Josi and Yannick Weber were growing up playing hockey together in Switzerland, a city in Tennessee was never a thought.
Sure, there were dreams of the two friends perhaps skating together one day in the Swiss League, but together in the NHL? Realistically thinking, probably not.
But now when Josi looks down to his right just a couple of stalls in the Nashville Predators locker room, there's Weber, the guy Josi's known since they were children, willing to see how far this hockey thing could take them.
"It's crazy when you think about it," Josi said of skating on the same club with one of his best friends over 4,600 miles from home.
