Needless to say, it figures to be a great time.

Army Staff Sergeant Has Re-enlistment Ceremony on Preds Ice

Bitetto, Bonino, Smith and Watson Join Army Staff Sergeant for Ceremony Prior to Veterans Day Game

by AJ Mazzolini @PredsNHL /

There's a welcoming feeling that comes with fandom, those experiences shared with passionate, like-minded individuals. Eric Burriss wanted to add that extra layer of significance to his reenlistment in the United States Army.

Burris, a staff sergeant with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), pitched the idea of taking his oath of re-enlistment at center ice of Bridgestone Arena, home to his favorite hockey team, the Nashville Predators. Of course the Predators were happy to oblige, welcoming Burriss and the entire 101st platoon for a Veterans Day visit.

Burriss celebrated his commitment to the U.S. Army with his family, fellow enlisted service members and the Predators organization in a short ceremony on the ice Saturday.

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Thanksgiving is still two weeks away, but for some Nashville families, what they'll put on the table is no longer a concern.

With the help of the Nashville Predators Foundation, turkeys donated by Bridgestone Arena concessions vendor Delaware North and side dishes provided by Preds staff, Filip Forsberg, Kevin Fiala, Ryan Ellis and Pontus Aberg headed out into the community to deliver Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings to deserving Music City residents, with help from the folks at Walmart.

While Ellis and Aberg paid a visit to Project Return, an organization with programs designed to help individuals who have been incarcerated successfully merge back into their local communities, Forsberg and Fiala made their way to the Metro Nashville Police Department Midtown Hills Precinct.

Preds Foundation, Staff Complete Seventh KaBOOM! Playground

KIPP Nashville College Prep is the Site of Latest Playground Donated by the Preds

by Natalie Aronson @NatalieAronson / Corporate Communications Manager

The Nashville Predators Foundation, Preds staff and close to 200 volunteers from organizations across Middle Tennessee dedicated their Thursday to build a playground, but not without a core mission in mind.

The day's mission? To play.

Sure, there were 15 projects to complete to see a finished playground in the space where mulch, concrete and grass currently sat, but all of that would get done regardless. The most important thing was that all 183 volunteers who showed up were going to have fun and play in the space they were creating for others to do the same.

Join the Preds in Movember Initiatives

Fans May Participate as Preds Players and Broadcasters Join the Fight

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Muzzy. Caterpillar. Lip sweater.

There's an unmistakable accessory that tends to show up in hockey circles when the calendar flips to November, and once again, the classic moustache and the Movember movement have returned.

Some are strong while others are laughable, but no matter the participant's ability - or lack thereof - to grow a stache, the cause is alive and well, and more important than ever.

Not once has Mike Fisher had a chance to attend the Nashville Christmas Parade.

His duties as a member of the Nashville Predators always conflicted with the celebration.

This year is finally different. The Preds' recently retired captain will be the guest of honor and serve as grand marshal at the 64th Annual Piedmont Natural Gas Nashville Christmas Parade this December.

The annual community centerpiece has been a staple of Nashville's holiday festivities dating back to 1927 and will once again benefit The Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Both organizations are excited to welcome the former Preds star to this year's event.

Room In The Inn Receives Gift from Foundation on Behalf of Former Preds Captain

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Mike Fisher may no longer have professional hockey player as part of his current title, but the role of philanthropist is something he'll never lose.

Now retired, the former Predators captain paid a visit to one of his favorite places in Nashville, Room In The Inn, but the appearance wasn't just to stop in and say hello to those who have made as much of an impact on his life as he has on theirs.

A gift for his recent retirement, the Nashville Predators Foundation presented Fisher and Room In The Inn with a check for $8,000 to help fund the newly formed Mike Fisher Legacy Project as a way for Fisher, the Preds and Room In The Inn to continue their partnership.

Hamilton Thrilled as U.S. Figure Skating Holds Major Event in Nashville

Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton Pleased to See Ford Ice Center Host Eastern Great Lakes Regional Championships

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Never in Scott Hamilton's wildest dreams did he imagine Ford Ice Center would host a U.S. Figure Skating Regional Championship event, let alone just three years into the facility's existence.

But for a man who made a career out of dreaming big, it was a no-brainer to accept when the president of U.S. Figure Skating made the trip to Ford Ice last summer and told Hamilton that a regional event was a must in Antioch, Tennessee.

So, on Friday afternoon, standing next to his Gold Medal won at the 1984 Olympic Winter Games in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hamilton looked around at the hundreds of young figure skaters competing in the U.S. Figure Skating Eastern Great Lakes Regional Championships with the same dreams he once had and couldn't help but smile.
