Preds Spread Love for Hockey, Friendship on Annual Community Day

Predators Players, Staff and Community Partners, Including BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, Give Back to Nashville Community

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt:

As soon as Thorrin Forslund walked in the room, he saw the beard.

"Ryan Ellis!" the 8-year-old exclaimed as he spotted his hero.

It wasn't the first time Thorrin had seen Ellis in person, but he was unable to get the words out to tell the Predators blueliner how much he meant to him on the first encounter.

Preds Extend Partnership with Fifth Third Bank

Predators Fans Have Plenty of New Ways to Enjoy Banking A Fifth Third Better

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

Prior to another win for the Predators on the ice, the organization scored another victory off of it as they announced a multi-year extension to their partnership with Fifth Third Bank as the official bank of the Preds and Bridgestone Arena.

Predators President and CEO Sean Henry, along with Fifth Third Bank Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Office Lars Anderson, made the announcement during the Fifth Third Better bash on the Bridgestone Arena Plaza prior to Thursday's game in Nashville.

A partnership that started back in 2011, the two sides agreed to re-up their deal a year before it was set to expire, showing the unrivaled commitment between the two organizations.

From the moment he sets foot in the facility, it's evident how much he means to these people, to this place.

The requests for handshakes, photos and autographs never wane, and he accepts each and every one of them with the same class he always has - and always will.

More than five years ago, once he signed his long-term deal to remain in Nashville, still the only NHL city he's ever known, Pekka Rinne wanted to do something more. Sure, he had been to Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt many times before, sometimes with his teammates, other times on his own, just to drop by for an afternoon.

What a weekend it was. 

The goal of the Nashville Predators Foundation's first-ever Weekend of Giving was simple - raise a record amount of funds for the 365 Pediatric Cancer Fund presented by Twice Daily at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, Make-a-Wish Middle Tennessee, Peterson Foundation for Parkinson's and the Preds Foundation - all in a single weekend.

Mission accomplished.

Preds Partner with Williamson County Schools to Reach Fitness Goals

Health Initiative Part of Special Projects in Local School System

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Most Nashville residents don't need the skating ability of Roman Josi or the reflexes of Pekka Rinne to make it in the real world. However, getting up off the couch or reaching for an apple instead of French fries can make a noticeable difference in everyday life.

Just as the Predators are preparing for the 2018-19 season on the ice, teachers, administrators and staff throughout Williamson County Schools have gotten their new school year underway, and they're doing so with a goal of living a healthier lifestyle.

That's where Preds Strength and Conditioning Coach David Good comes in.

Preds Staffers Embrace Mike Fisher Legacy Project at Room In The Inn

One Year In, Members of Nashville Front Office Continue to Serve Lunches at Homeless Facility

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Over the course of Mike Fisher's eight years as a Nashville resident, he's always found a way to make a difference in the community.

It likely wasn't widely broadcasted, no cameras or microphones to capture the goodwill that is simply a part of him, but it was happening, often just hours before he faced off against the NHL's best night after night.

There was a good chance he was stopping by Room In The Inn - a full-service homeless facility just blocks away from Bridgestone Arena - unannounced, doing whatever he could to bring a smile, and hope, to those who may have lost their way.

Yannick Weber may have some competition residing at the Nashville Humane Association.

When his girlfriend, Kayla Price, stopped by to make a much-needed donation to the facility, she quickly learned the shelter had fittingly named one of their new puppies Yannick Weber. Already an owner of two dogs herself, Price's heart melted as she met the new Yannick.

So, the question had to be asked - would she be filling out adoption papers before heading home?

"Potentially," Price laughed. "But don't tell the real one."

Blog: Preds Staffers, Soles4Souls Give Back in Honduras

Members of the Nashville Front Office Blog from Honduras as They Team Up with Soles4Souls

by Will McCaskill @PredsNHL /

Our trip started bright and early at 3:45 a.m. on Sunday, and after an initial stop in Atlanta, our flight into San Pedro Sula, Honduras, officially got the journey underway.

After spending time going through customs, finding bags and renting vans, we met our team of Darwin and Raul. It almost seemed like we had a welcoming committee, as people lined the exit from the terminal, waiting for their returning families.

As we ventured outside of the airport grounds, we were hit by the saturation of green. Green valleys, green mountains and a green agricultural landscape. Rural buildings and farms are nestled in the breathtaking geography of Honduras.

Think back to when you were 10 years old.

Remember the summer days spent on the soccer field or in the pool with your friends without a care in the world? And then, suddenly, a cooler full of popsicles appeared?

Those were the days.
