The Nashville Predators kick off what will be a month long celebration of all things Preds hockey today with an open house at Bridgestone Arena today.
Later this month there will be a town hall forum with players and coaches at the annueal Skate of the union address.
Predators Executive Vice President Chris Parker explained the events, “Our annual Skate of the Union event has grown so much over the years that we have decided to make the festivities even grander by breaking them up into two separate events. Next Saturday’s (today) on-sale event will feature an Open House that includes several popular fan experiences such as a used equipment sale, locker room tours and an open skate. The festivities will culminate later in August with a Town Hall Meeting featuring Shea Weber, David Poile, Barry Trotz, Tom Cigarran and Jeff Cogen.”
