A ticket to see Filip Forsberg, P.K. Subban and the rest of the Nashville Predators take to the ice inside Bridgestone Arena might just be in greater demand these days than anything else in the Music City.
After an inspiring run to the Stanley Cup Final, Preds fans made their presence felt on a local and national level, and that includes in the club's ticket department, which has seen a 40 percent rise in season-ticket sales over the past few months.
Those at the helm realize not every fan has the ability to attend all 41 home games - or even half of those - but there's still a way to enjoy all the benefits a Predators season-ticket holder enjoys, including significantly reduced ticket prices and Stanley Cup Playoff priority when the time comes.
The Loyal Legion 10-Game Mini Plan presented by Puckett's Gro. & Restaurant provides the most flexibility of any ticket package available to watch the Preds in person on a regular basis. Fans have three plans to choose from - the Smashville Pack, the Golden Moments Pack or the Seventh Man Pack - each featuring marquee games throughout the season.
Now, here's where the customizations comes in. Want to attend the home opener on Oct. 10 to see the Western Conference Championship Banner raised? Add it on. Want to attend five additional Saturday night contests? No problem.
Fans have the ability to add as many games as they like onto their plan - any and every marquee matchup they want to see in person. Plus, get your mac and cheese fix before the games with a $20 Puckett's gift card included with every package purchased.
The Loyal Legion 10-Game Plan is just another way for the Predators to offer the loudest, most passionate fans in sports the opportunity to experience Smashville at its very best.
"It's something that we're proud of - we're proud of what we're able to offer," Senior Vice President of Ticket Sales Nat Harden said. "We worked hard to be able to make it available this year after such an influx of full and half-season tickets, and it's given our mini-plan holders the opportunity to purchase any game they want. We're able to offer 700 of these packages, and it's important to us to be able to go back to the people who had mini plans last year and be able to purchase a package again this season."
Information on all three available 10-game plans can be seen by clicking here. Can't decide which one to buy? Here are three games from each plan you won't want to miss.
Golden Moments Pack:
Friday, Dec. 8, Preds vs. Vegas Golden Knights: Your first chance to see former Preds forward James Neal and the rest of the Golden Knights in person. The NHL's 31st club will begin play this October and the early December meeting will be the first time in history the two franchises face off.
Tuesday, Jan. 30, Preds vs. Chicago Blackhawks: It's always hotly contested when these two get together, especially after last postseason's sweep over the Blackhawks.
Thursday, Mar. 29, Preds vs. San Jose Sharks: A playoff rivalry formed over the years, the Sharks saw longtime winger Patrick Marleau depart for Toronto this summer. Still, San Jose figures to be in the playoff picture and a game this late in the season could have implications on the rest of the spring.
Wednesday, Nov. 22, Preds vs. Montreal Canadiens: A Thanksgiving eve matchup will provide the second visit from Shea Weber since being dealt to Montreal in exchange for P.K. Subban. It could also be the first chance for Subban to face his former club in Nashville, as the blueliner was injured during the first meeting last season.
Sunday, Feb. 25, Preds vs. St. Louis Blues: After meeting in the playoffs for the first time last spring, this late February contest against St. Louis marks the fourth and final meeting of the two clubs during the 2017-18 regular season. Games are usually tight and competitive against these two and a Sunday evening tilt should be no different.
Saturday, Mar. 31, Preds vs. Buffalo Sabres: The final day of the last full month of the regular season will see former Assistant Coach Phil Housley return as head coach of the Sabres in a game that could mean plenty for both teams as the postseason looms.
Seventh Man Pack:
Saturday, Dec. 2, Preds vs. Anaheim Ducks: Nashville's first game in December will see the Ducks return to Bridgestone Arena for the first time since the Preds defeated them to advance to the Stanley Cup Final earlier this year.
Thursday, Mar. 22, Preds vs. Toronto Maple Leafs: Arguably the best young talent in the League behind Connor McDavid, Auston Matthews will lead his Leafs into town flanked by other young stars in Mitch Marner and William Nylander. Plus, don't forget about Toronto's addition of former Shark Patrick Marleau.
Saturday, Apr. 7, Preds vs. Blue Jackets: The final game of the regular season not only means Fan Appreciation Night, but also another chance to see former Preds defenseman Seth Jones and centerman Ryan Johansen face their former clubs.
