'The Predator' revealed as 11th NHL Guardian
The Predator

"The Predator" ("The Pred") is a fan of all music seeing as Nashville is Music City. A skilled musician, he is comfortable with almost any instrument but the guitar is his favorite and he loves sitting in the rafters of the Grand Ole Opry. The Pred is an outdoorsman, like many of the Guardians, and his sense of smell makes him an excellent tracker.

As a result of Tennessee being nicknamed the Volunteer State, the Pred is the most duty driven of the Guardians. No matter the danger the Pred is the first guy to join the mission. His size might say otherwise, but he sees himself as the consummate underdog and as such he makes it his mission to outwork his opponents. This mentality makes him unbeatable in a fight, and the other Guardians use him as their own personal measuring stick in regards to personal fortitude. In the face of insurmountable odds, many a Guardian has uttered the phrase "What would Pred do?"



Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
