The Nashville Predators are teaming up with youth hockey teams across the state for the 2008-09 Preds Player Clinics presented by Delta Dental of Tennessee. These free clinics are conducted throughout the Preds regular hockey season as a part of the organization's mission to support and develop youth hockey within the community. Designed to give youth hockey players a chance to improve their hockey skills, Preds Amateur & Youth Hockey staff along with Predators players assist with team practices at local ice rinks.
