Predators Prospect Report

by Kevin Wilson / Nashville Predators
The 2008-09 hockey season is underway across the globe. NashvillePredators.com updates the progress of the Preds prospects playing in various developmental or European professional leagues.


2007 first round pick Jonathon Blum has continued his stellar play from Preds Training Camp into the WHL regular season. Despite playing half as many games as most of the league, Blum is tied for the league lead in plus/minus (+14) and ranks among the league leaders in points by a defenseman.
