Fans gather at the various autograph stations before the start of the event. Stations were set up throughout the concourse with players at each, and they were available to autograph items and have pictures made.
This is the line for Pekka Rinne. His booth is past the far Tennessee Zone sign in the distance.

This is a great event that allows the fans to mingle with the players and see them as people. They are a great bunch of guys first and hockey players second. Kudos to the Predators organization for putting this event together.
