Predators Statement on the Passing of Former Captain Greg Johnson

Forward Played 502 Games with Nashville, Selected in 1998 Expansion Draft

by Press Release @PredsNHL /

The entire Nashville Predators organization is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Greg Johnson. Greg was an original Predator, coming to us in the expansion draft and serving as the team's second-ever team captain, and first Predators captain to lead the team to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. During his time in Nashville, he was a consummate professional and terrific teammate who was an integral part of our community and in developing the Predators culture that we experience today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Kristin and his daughters Carson and Piper. We offer our full support to them at this very difficult time.
