Preds representatives shine at Ace\'s Got Skills Nationals
For the second straight season, the Nashville Predators youth hockey region was well represented at the Ace’s Got Skills nationals competition held June 22-24 at the Aviator Sports and Recreation Complex in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Twelve squirt and peewee hockey players from the Predators region qualified for the national tournament based on their performances at local competitions held in area rinks January 20-22.

Representatives from the Predators region at the 2007 Ace's Got Skills Nationals, June 22-24 at Aviator Rink in Brooklyn, NY.
At the end of the three-day event, six of Nashville's contingent placed in competitions ranging from fastest skater to shot accuracy. The team, which competed against squads fielded by the other 29 NHL markets, was one of the few with three champions in its age group - Jacob Carr (Squirt-House Division, Hardest Shot), Chris Marti (Pee Wee-House Division, Hardest Shot) and Devin Pierce (Squirt-House Division, Shot Accuracy).

Pierce was joined by Jake Malezis as the only two Predators representatives to place in two separate events, as both snipers excelled in shot accuracy and the shootout competition.
