Thursday, October 5
Nashville will be on the prowl and looking for some fresh blood on Thursday, October 5. It is the start of the hockey season and our first game will be against the Chicago Blackhawks. Pre-game festivities will start at 5:00pm on the plaza, just outside of the Gaylord Entertainment Center. The game will start at 7:00pm and Tom Fitzgerald will drop the puck. Mr. Fitzgerald is a 17- year veteran of the NHL who has recently retired. He was the first captain in the Predators history and played here from 1998-2002.
Opening night highlights:
~All fans will receive a long-sleeved Predators t-shirt, courtesy of First Tennessee and FSN South.
~The Nashville Predators Dancers and GNASH will be at the pre-game festivities along with the interactive CMT Cross Country Experience and live music from The Lost Trailers.
~Following the game, a selection of fans drawn at random will be invited to the ice to win the Predators game-worn jerseys, right of the players backs. To register for the shirts-off-their-backs promotion, fans will need to fill out and turn in the entry form located inside their Predators Press game program.
~One lucky fan will also win a trip to Chicago to watch the Predators take on the Blackhawks on January 5 at the United Center-airfare, hotel and game tickets are included.
