NHL Lockout: Ken Holland Planning To Scout During Work Stoppage

Ken Holland would typically be in Traverse City for Detroit Red Wings workouts at this time, but the NHL lockout has forced him to change his plans for the time being. So, instead of observing his own players, the Red Wings general manager plans to go on the road and scout potential players during the work stoppage.

Holland spoke to the Detroit Free Press this week, acknowledging that he'll need a new routine until the lockout is settled.

"For the most part, every other league in the world is up and running," he said. "There'll be lots of scouting opportunities. Grand Rapids starts up next month. In early October, there's U.S. colleges. You get into a routine, and you enjoy routines. But the business of hockey has to be dealt with first."

Holland also said that he's staying up to date with the negotiations and getting emails when new things happen, but there's been nothing new since the lockout began.
