There are plenty of charity golf tournaments and charity races, but not many can say they have been to a charity clay shoot.

However, for the third straight year, the CATCHIN' DEERS Mike Fisher Celebrity Clay Shoot, presented by Cooper Steel, was nothing but a success at the Nashville Gun Club on Wednesday. Forty different teams of celebrities and Preds supporters and sponsors joined former Nashville Captain Mike Fisher for a bit of fun on the course in support of the Preds Foundation empowered by SmileDirectClub.

Before puck dropped for the Predators on Opening Night, the Preds Foundation once again completed a successful Week of Giving, presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, from Oct. 4-8 featuring dozens of staff appearances throughout the Nashville community.

"Our Week of Giving was a great way to kick off the 2021-22 season in true Preds fashion by spreading some Gold and giving back to Smashville," Preds Community Relations Coordinator Taylor Klein said. "It's a top priority of the Preds Foundation to provide plenty of opportunities for the Preds staff to stay engaged with the community and give back by volunteering their time with a staff goal of 8,000 hours of service each year."

And then there were 23.

After starting with 55 players in attendance three weeks ago, Nashville's Training Camp is officially over, and the Predators have set their Opening Night roster ahead of Thursday's meeting against the Seattle Kraken to start the 2021-22 season.

Over that 21-day span, the Preds won four of their six preseason outings - and only lost once in regulation - while coming together and accomplishing exactly what they set out to do in the first normal training camp since 2019.

The systems, the special teams, the conditioning, the bonding - that's all been taken care of while maintaining a fresh outlook every day in a process that could easily become monotonous with the same routine day after day.

Instead, there's been a different energy around the group, and it's left a feeling of anticipation for what's to come when the puck drops for real.

The evaluating never stops in the midst of an NHL training camp, and who plays with who is always one of the more bantered-about topics.

The word "chemistry" is thrown around more than most nouns at this time of year, and for the Predators, finding that chemistry when it comes to on-ice personnel is high on the to-do list before Opening Night.

Preds Head Coach John Hynes and his staff have already had four preseason games to test out a number of forward lines and defensive pairings, including in Saturday's 6-1 win over Tampa Bay. Nashville got contributions from all over the ice - 13 players had at least one point on the scoresheet in the victory - but things don't always go as planned from start to finish.

Sure, there are predictions aplenty, but no one really knows what's going to happen over the next three weeks as the Predators open Training Camp ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Preds General Manager David Poile has been doing this long enough to know that just about anything is possible in the days ahead, and while he may have an idea as to who will be dressed for his club on Opening Night come Oct. 14, there is bound to be a surprise or two at some point.
