Alain Vigneault said the other day that both Nick Holden and Brady Skjei would get looks at playing on the right side.
Holden is scheduled to play on the right side tonight against the Flyers.
Vigneault said that Holden told him that he feels comfortable on the right side and he has more experience in that position than Skjei does.
Holden told Larry Brooks that he feels he can play either side and adapt to "whomever" he is playing with. (NY Post)
He said that his focus is always on being responsible defensively and is thankful to former coach Patrick Roy to playing him in all different situations. (NY Post)
Holden played on the left on Thursday against the Devils and played 22:28, 3 shots on goal, 2 shot attempts blocked, 2 shots that missed the net, 3 hits and 1 blocked shot.
On Sunday, Alain Vigneault said "I have watched Nick work on the right side in practice and he has played well. You can tell that he is comfortable there."
