As part of the Nashville Predators' continued efforts to support local youth hockey, the organization is proud to join Predators forward Adam Hall in presenting the Most Improved Player Award for youth hockey players in the Nashville and Kalamazoo, Mich. areas.
As a youth hockey player growing up in Kalamazoo, Hall received a Most Improved Player award. This award motivated him to try harder, which in turn helped Hall to become the professional hockey player he is today. Youth hockey coaches from both Nashville and Kalamazoo were asked to nominate the most improved player on their team. Two winners were chosen in each city, and recipients received $500 to use toward new hockey equipment.
The recipients of the Adam Hall Most Improved Award are:
