Brent Peterson Golf Classic Celebrates Decade of Combating Parkinson's

10th Annual Tournament Continues to Raise Funds, Awareness for Peterson for Parkinson's Foundation, Nashville Predators Foundation

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

Elbow bumps were traded instead of hugs, and masks became part of golf attire, but drives were flying and putts were sunk just as they are every year about this time.

The Nashville Predators Foundation hosted its 10th annual First Horizon Brent Peterson Golf Classic on Monday at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tennessee, and despite the new guidelines in place throughout everyday life, the ultimate goal was still achieved.

Over $70,000 was raised for the Preds Foundation and Peterson Foundation for Parkinson's during the course of the day, and in the past decade, over $1.6 million has been accumulated thanks to the event.

Hinote Eager to Use Playing, Coaching Experience to Improve Preds

Nashville's New Assistant Coach Hopes to Connect with Players on Multiple Levels to Make Them Better

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

Dan Hinote isn't about to flash his Stanley Cup ring to everyone on the first day of training camp to begin the 2020-21 season - whenever that may be.

But Nashville's new assistant coach, who won the sport's ultimate prize back in 2001 as a player with the Colorado Avalanche, has never forgotten that experience and how he and his team got there.

That championship run is just one of the moments that have shaped Hinote over the past two decades, first as a scrappy, tenacious forward who appeared in more than 500 NHL contests, and now as a voice behind the bench for players hoping to reach the pinnacle just like he did.

by Press Release @PredsNHL / Nashville Predators

Nashville, Tenn. (September 10, 2020) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/GM David Poile announced today that the team has hired Dan Hinote as an assistant coach.

"Dan Hinote's character, personality, as well as playing and coaching experience will be a great fit for our team and players," Predators Head Coach John Hynes said. "As a player, Dan brought energy and leadership to his teams, winning a Stanley Cup with Colorado in 2001, and his experience as a coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets and USA Hockey's National Team Development Program will be of great value to our organization."

"In this assistant coach position, we were looking for a former player who was fairly recently retired but still had coaching experience, and Dan fit that description perfectly," Poile said. "He builds strong connections with players - including Ryan Johansen in his time in Columbus - and has played with Predators alumni and Hall of Famers Paul Kariya and Peter Forsberg in Colorado, as well as Predators Director of Player Development Scott Nichol, Preds broadcaster Chris Mason and Kariya again in St. Louis. Dan complements John and the rest of our current staff nicely, and I trust he will be a tremendous asset to the team."
