This marks the third straight season Predators prospects have played a Southeastern Division opponent during their camp, which starts Sept. 13 with testing. In 2008, they hosted the Atlanta Thrashers for two games at Bridgestone Arena, and in 2009 a team of rookies traveled to Duluth, Ga., for games at the Thrashers practice facility.
Prospects expected to attend the camp include first rounders Jonathon Blum
(2007), Chet Pickard
(2008), Ryan Ellis
(2009) and Austin Watson
(2010) and second rounders Blake Geoffrion (2006), Roman Josi
(2008) and Charles-Olivier Roussel
The contests will precede the opening of 2010 Training Camp, which occurs the following day, Sept. 17, with testing and physicals. The Predators’ first day on the ice will be Saturday, Sept. 18 at the Centennial Sportsplex and they will play six preseason contests from Sept. 23-Oct. 3, including three at home (Sept. 23 vs. Carolina, Sept. 25 vs. Washington and Sept. 27 vs. Atlanta).
Individual game tickets for Nashville’s preseason games at the Bridgestone Arena will go on sale in September. For information regarding 2010-11 Nashville Predators tickets, visit nashvillepredators.com.
