The camp will culminate with the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Future Stars Game on Saturday, June 29 at 7 p.m. CT at Ford Ice Center Antioch. Tickets for the game go on sale the week of June 17 to Smashville Season-Ticket Citizens via their account manager and are $10; all proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Ford Ice Center Scholarship Fund. The contest will be streamed live on and on a big screen outside the rink.

That same day from 5-9 p.m. CT, all fans can also enjoy several activities at Ford Ice Center Antioch's Southeast Green Space, including games, inflatables, face painters, a photo booth, concession stands, giveaways and appearances by GNASH, the Predators Energy Team and team broadcast personalities. The first 100 kids will receive a complimentary street hockey kit, and following the game, Tolvanen, Fabbro and the Preds' 2019 first-round draft pick will sign autographs for fans inside the rink.

Players will also participate in community relations activities across Nashville on Thursday, June 27; a full announcement with times and locations will be available in the coming days.
