"Predsolution" Passed in Tennessee House of Representatives

Predators Honored for Accomplishments by Local Government

by Natalie Aronson @NatalieAronson / NashvillePredators.com

It's not every day you see the president and mascot of a professional hockey club passing out rally towels to government officials, ranging from chairmen and floor leaders to whips and representatives.

Then again, it's not every day the Tennessee House of Representatives passes a resolution honoring the Nashville Predators.

The six-page "Predsolution" was filed jointly by the House and signed by Gov. Bill Haslam last month recognizing the organization and honoring the Nashville Predators as 2017 Western Conference Champions.

Subban, Preds Teammates Visit Montreal Children's Hospital

Nashville Defenseman Continues to Pledge Support, Love for Patients in Montreal

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Among the traffic and the snow-covered sidewalks, amid the hustle and bustle of the lunchtime rush in Quebec, the Montreal Children's Hospital rose up into the sky, bright with blues, greens and golds glowing on its exterior.

From the moment he stepped off the bus and through the front doors, into the atrium that bears his name, the energy grew tenfold.

Donning a gold jersey with his No. 76 emblazoned on the back and sleeves, and a custom adidas hat to match, he went to work. Everyone who laid eyes on him smiled, some brave enough to ask for a photograph, others observing from afar, a wave of happiness spreading over the space.

Turris Hosts Sled Preds as Hockey Is For Everyone Month Begins

Nashville Center Serving as Hockey Is For Everyone Player Ambassador

by AJ Mazzolini @ajmazzolini / NashvillePredators.com

In a buzzing hallway within the bowels of Bridgestone Arena, Kyle Turris scribbled his signature over and over again. He shook hands with admirers and penned his name on Nashville Predators jerseys, posters and pucks in the kind of scene familiar to most longtime professional athletes.

The evening felt different though. A two-way reverence connected the group of fans and the 10th-year NHL veteran in his first season with the Preds. Last month when Turris was named Nashville's Hockey is for Everyone Player Ambassador, he knew whom he wanted as his first guests of honor.

On Thursday the Predators welcomed the Nashville Sled Preds, a local organization of hockey teams for those with paraplegic disabilities. Team members attended the matchup against the Los Angeles Kings before a postgame, backstage meet-and-greet with Turris.

Nashville, Tennessee, is almost 800 miles away from Houston, Texas, but that's not about to stop the Predators from assisting those in need.

More than 20 Preds employees are set to embark to the Lone Star State this week to provide relief for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, a storm that devastated portions of the city last fall. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, the Predators staffers will help to rebuild the home of an elderly woman over a two-day span.

In addition, the Predators Foundation has made a monetary donation of $10,000 to the local Habitat for Humanity organization to support ongoing efforts to rebuild the lives of Hurricane Harvey victims.

After a puck drop by GNASH, the game was on. Families and hockey fans alike were in attendance, cheering on the players and having a laugh over the slips and slides they took while shuffling down the ice.

Preds, Special Spaces Give Bedroom Makeover to Deserving Teen

Predators Wives, Girlfriends and Front Office Staff Join in Completing Makeover

by Keely Ninness @PredsNHL / NashvillePredators.com

In a quiet neighborhood in Franklin, Tennessee, the streets were crowded with cars sporting Preds license plates and bumper stickers.

Inside one of the homes, Predators' wives and girlfriends were hard at work transforming 19-year-old Krystal Adams's bedroom into a beach-themed getaway. Because of her battle with a rare brain tumor, the Predators, in partnership with Special Spaces, wanted to give Krystal the perfect space to relax and unwind.

"A child's room is an escape from their life-threatening conditions," Rhonda McCarthy, wife of Associate Coach Kevin McCarthy and Director of the Nashville chapter of Special Spaces said. "The Preds work with Special Spaces to guarantee every child will always have a space to escape and forget about their pain."

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

The handful of Predators players taking the second bus to Staples Center were all huddled around an iPhone.

Sure, they had their own game to worry about in just a few hours against the Los Angeles Kings, but at that moment on Interstate 10, they were fully invested in how the Tennessee Titans were faring in Kansas City.

The final answer saw the Titans advancing to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs that continue this weekend when the Titans head to Foxboro for a meeting with the New England Patriots (7:15 p.m. CT, CBS).

Less than 24 hours after the Nashville Predators host the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena, a skirmish of similar proportions will take place just up the road.

The Downtown Commons outdoor ice rink in Clarksville, Tennessee, will be the sight, with Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett challenging Fort Campbell's Major General Andrew Poppas to a game of broomball, with faceoff set for 6:30 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday.

Members of the Preds Energy Team and GNASH, plus Predators alumni, will be on site to greet fans and cheer on the County and Fort Campbell teams as they do battle on the outdoor rink, with a public skating session to follow.

The event is a perfect opportunity for the Preds to support Clarksville's endeavors to grow the game of hockey, as well as show gratitude toward our nation's armed forces by joining in a friendly game of broomball - with major bragging rights on the line.

The public is invited to wear their Preds gear and attend the game on Wednesday evening, free of charge.
