About Nashville Predators
The Nashville Predators became the 27th team in the National Hockey League on May 4, 1998, and went from a fledgling expansion franchise to a fixture in the Middle Tennessee community in the years that followed. The team strives each season to achieve its one goal: to become a Stanley Cup champion hockey team while making Bridgestone Arena the number one sports and entertainment venue in the United States. In 2020 alone, with one goal in mind, the Nashville Predators organization has generated approximately $5.5 million in life-changing funds to help a wide variety of relief efforts, non-profit organizations non-profits and people in need. On the ice, the team has enjoyed historic success in recent seasons, qualifying for the Stanley Cup Playoffs eight times in a row, a run marked by a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2017, winning the Presidents’ Trophy in 2017-18 and winning a second straight Central Division title in 2018-19.
