Other "12th Titan" honorees include Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price, who played baseball at nearby Vanderbilt University, former Titans defensive end Jevon Kearse and Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson.

Traded to the Predators from the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Shea Weber on June 29, Subban's five points (two goals, three assists) are tied with forward Filip Forsberg for the team lead. He had two assists in Nashville's 5-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.
