-- Proceeds To Benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief Work and Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt --
While the current versions of the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues won’t be facing off at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, Nov. 10, a group of alumni and coaches from the two Central Division rivals will get together for a charity game at 5:30 p.m. that night at A-Game Sportsplex in Cool Springs.
Former Predators J-P Dumont, Stu Grimson, Dan Keczmer along with assistant coach Lane Lambert will help man a Predators alumni squad directed by co-benchbosses Terry Crisp – Nashville TV color commentator who is one of only a select few to both play and coach for Stanley Cup winning teams – and Brent Peterson, current hockey operations advisor and former coach/NHL player.
The Blues alumni team is headlined by current broadcasters Kelly Chase, Tyson Nash and Darren Pang, as well as Blues community ambassador Bob Plager and former All-Star defenseman Jeff Brown.
A suggested $5 donations will be accepted at the door with proceeds going toward Hurricane Sandy relief work in the Northeast and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
