The Nashville Predators 2016 Development Camp, which opens on Monday, will conclude with a host of can’t-miss events for hockey fans on Saturday, July 2.
The fan-favorite, annual Used Equipment Sale returns to Ford Ice Center next Saturday in conjunction with the camp’s scrimmage and several other family friendly events in the park next to Antioch’s twin-rink facility.
Predators fans will again have the opportunity to draw closer to the team they love through the equipment sale with player-used sticks, skates, practice jerseys, bags and locker room name plates available for a discounted price.
“It’s a cool opportunity for fans to get some of the equipment that the team uses during the year,” Predators Head Equipment Manager Pete Rogers said of the sale. “We give the fans a special opportunity to wear an actual piece of equipment that’s game used, and for a decent price too, usually less than the original price of the item. It’s a great way of the team to give back to the fans.”
The Used Equipment Sale will open for Preds season-ticket holders at 9:15 a.m. (CT) on July 2 in the upstairs portion of Ford Ice Center. The general public is then invited to peruse the merchandise at 10:30 a.m. In order to gain early access (at 9 a.m.) to the sale, season-ticket holders are encouraged to use their Smashville Rewards points to bid on a chance at a Golden Ticket.
The park adjacent to Ford Ice Center, filled with inflatables, food and music, will open at 9 a.m. on July 2. Following the Development Camp scrimmage at 11 a.m., Ford Ice Center will host a public skate and multiple prospects are expected to sign autographs for fans.
