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 / NashvillePredators.com

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.

When the Nashville Predators broke ground on the Ford Ice Center five years ago, hopes were high for what the building would do for hockey and skating in the region.

Little did they know.

Five years later, hockey players, figure skaters and community members alike stream through one of the busiest facilities in the country from 5 a.m. until 1 a.m., a nonstop show of support for the sports in a city where indoor ice was once a foreign concept.

From Rookies to Veterans, Preds Realize City of Nashville is Special

Predators Players Say Music City is Top Destination to Work and Live

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

When Pekka Rinne was notified in the summer of 2004 that he had been drafted by the Predators, one of the first things he did was consult an atlas.

Nashville, Tennessee? No idea.

Little did the goaltender know, that southern city with the hockey team who called his named, he would grow to know that city, to love that city, to call that city his home.

Craft Beer Festival Brings Preds Fans, Beer Lovers Together

Sixth Annual Festival, Presented by Allegiant, Hosts Over 70 Breweries at Bridgestone Arena

2018 Craft Beer Festival

Foundation's Craft Beer Fest attracts 3,000 fans

The Predators Foundation's 2018 Craft Beer Festival presented by Allegiant featured more than 70 breweries and 3,000 attendees

  • 02:30 •

An out-of-towner comes to Nashville on the third weekend of June and three things are guaranteed: country music, adult beverages and Predators Pride. Luckily for this visitor, all three of these things were found in the same place.

The sixth annual Craft Beer Festival presented by Allegiant took place at Bridgestone Arena this weekend and much like in years past, it did not disappoint. With the local craft beers taking the main stage on the covered ice surface, and many domestic and other craft beers calling the first-level concourse their home for the afternoon, this beer festival catered to all beer lovers. Being someone from out of town, out of state, Alberta, Canada, to be exact, I am continually astonished by the pride that this city takes in their hockey team.

A city in the heart, and heat, of SEC football territory, one might not assume that a sport played on ice is what the residents thrive on. I have thrown out all my preconceived notions about what Nashville might be and have realized what Nashville is: hockey country. Preds pride flows freely in these parts, and the Craft Beer Festival was no exception. Taking place in the home of the Predators, I was engulfed by fans in Preds puck-heads, jerseys, t-shirts, flags and many other team-related memorabilia pieces (including a Predators-themed Freddy Krueger face mask).

Subban Named Finalist for King Clancy Memorial Trophy

Predators Defenseman One of Three Up for Clancy Trophy Thanks to Contribution to Community

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Already one of the 31 NHL players nominated for the 2018 King Clancy Memorial Trophy last week, P.K. Subban is now in the Top Three.

On Wednesday, Subban was named a finalist for the trophy, awarded annually "to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community." Originally nominated by the Predators organization, Subban's advancement comes courtesy of a committee of senior NHL executives, led by Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.

According to the NHL, the selection committee applies the following criteria in determining the finalists and winner of the King Clancy Memorial Trophy: Investment of time and resources, commitment to a particular cause or community, creativity of programming, use of influence, engagement of others and measurement of impact.

Suffice to say, Subban and his initiatives check each and every one of those boxes.
