NASHVILLE -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Friday the 2016 NHL All-Star weekend will be hosted by the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena, on Jan. 30 and Jan. 31, 2016.
The 2016 All-Star Game will be the first the Nashville has hosted. The Predators hosted the 2003 NHL Draft, an event that was well-received throughout the League. The NHL is confident that an All-Star Game in Nashville will garner a similar reception.
"There is no doubt that putting our game center stage here in Nashville is going to be great for the NHL and for Nashville," Bettman said.
The Predators are looking forward to putting Bridgestone Arena and the city of Nashville on display for the world to see. The Predators are trying to set the bar high for the fans to make the 2016 NHL All-Star weekend an experience they never will forget.
