Predators Give Back to the Community

The Predators make a stop back home in the midst of a five game road trip to spend some time giving back to the Nashville community. On Monday, October 19th, every member of the team will make an appearance at various community service events throughout Middle Tennessee. Appearances will be made at hospitals, schools, youth hockey clinics, and community centers. The players will be reading and interacting with students, visiting patients, conducting youth hockey clinics, and greeting fans.

The events that will be open to the public will be held at:

O'Charley's at 17 White Bridge Rd from 5:00-6:00, where Jordin Tootoo and Colin Wilson will greet and serve guests.

Lexus of Nashville at 1636 Brentwood Cr. in Brentwood. Kevin Klein and David Legwand will be there from 5:00-6:00 to greet guests and sign autographs.

McDonald's 2499 Murfreesboro Pk, Nashville. Dan Ellis and Wade Belak will be there from 5:30-6:30 to greet guests and serve food

Hardee's 508 Waldron Rd in LaVergne. Teemu Laakso and Cal O'Reilly will be there from 6:00-7:00 to greet guests and serve food.

Other members of the Predators will be involved in classroom events and hospital visits that will not be open to the public.

This team plays on the ice with great character and heart. That character and heart does not stop when they leave the ice, but is manifested in many worthwhile events throughout the community. This is an off day for the team, a time when players can spend resting or being with their families. They are giving up this time to make our community a better place and improve the lives of those of those less fortunate.

We in Middle Tennessee are fortunate to have a caring group of athletes in our community who support us as much as we support them.
