DETROIT — Nicklas Lidstrom will be profiled on the NBC Sports Network’s “NHL 36.”
“They were in a lot of our meetings, they were in our penalty-killing meeting just to see what that’s like,” Lidstrom said Monday. “I guess we’ll have to wait and see. It just started this morning so we haven’t done a whole lot, but it’s different. It’s different having someone follow you the whole time no matter what you do, whether you’re in here, or like today, I rode a bike instead of going on the ice. I did some stretching and we had our meeting, so it’s just a matter of getting used to it.”
Here is a portion of the release from the NHL:
