The top high school hockey teams in Tennessee meet to decide the best team at the Predators Cup.
When the Nashville Predators arrived in 1998 there were no high school hockey leagues and less than eight teams statewide. This year more than 25 high school teams from Knoxville, Memphis and greater Nashville competed in independent league play from October-February for seeding placement into the 18th Preds Cup Tennessee High School Hockey Championship.
The Predators Cup serves as a platform to highlight the top Tennessee high school hockey teams, as well as a community outreach initiative supported by the Predators. The Nashville Predators established the Preds Cup during the 1999-00 season as part of the team's mission to increase the visibility of hockey on the amateur level in Tennessee.
