Barry Trotz

Barry Trotz (born July 15, 1962 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) is the head coach of NHL ice hockey team Nashville Predators. He was previously the coach of the American Hockey League's Baltimore Skipjacks and Portland Pirates, with whom he won an AHL championship in 1994. That same year, he won the Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award, which is awarded to the outstanding coach in the AHL as voted upon by the AHL Broadcasters and Writers.

He became the coach of Predators in 1997, when the team was created. As of 2010, Trotz remains the only coach of the team, having led the Preds to three consecutive playoff appearances. He holds the record for most games coached by the first coach of an NHL franchise. By virtue of that, he also holds the record for most games coached by the first coach of an NHL expansion franchise.

The record for an expansion franchise was previously held by Terry Crisp while with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Coincidentally, Crisp now works as a radio and TV broadcaster for the Nashville Predators.

Prior to becoming a coach, Trotz played for the WHL's Regina Pats from 1979 to 1982. Barry coached the junior Dauphin Kings in 1986-87 and won the MJHL title as well as the Anavet Cup.

Trotz currently lives in Nashville with his family; wife Kim and children Shalan, Tyson, Tiana, Nolan, and Hope.
