It's not just Saturdays that are Golden anymore.
The Nashville Predators will now sport their Gold helmets during each home game at Bridgestone Arena during the 2016-17 season, replacing the navy helmets as the bucket of choice during home contests. What began last season as a promotion on Saturday home games has now been expanded, as the Preds continue to grow their unique brand built around Gold.
"As we grow the Gold throughout the whole community, it's even more important to continue what we did on the ice with Golden Saturdays into all of our home games. The most integral part to our brand is Gold, and we're going to display it as often as we possibly can," Nashville Predators President and CEO Sean Henry said. "September also marks Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and with Gold as the official color of the cause, we can help to honor all who are affected by the disease, and to rally support for a cure."
In addition to the uniform change, the Preds will distribute premium promotional items at 23 home games, plus a slew of other giveaways throughout the season, ensuring every home game in Smashville will be special in 2016-17.
The club also announced the 2016-17 broadcast schedule on Wednesday, with all 82 games set to be televised for the second consecutive season - 80 of which will be seen on FOX Sports Tennessee - complete with pre- and postgame coverage for every contest.
