10th Anniv.: 2000 Season Opens in Japan
October 7-8, 2000

The dawn of the Predators’ third season took place in the Land of the Rising Sun.  As part of Game ONe Japan, Nashville split a two-game series against Jaromir Jagr and the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Saitama Super Arena outside of Tokyo, Japan.  The two games drew the two largest crowds ever to witness hockey games in Japan (13,849 for the first game and 13,426 for the second game).

The Predators’ players and coaches had the unique opportunity to share their sport in a nontraditional hockey atmosphere, in addition to taking in the hospitality and culture than Japan and its people had to offer.  Players were impressed by the enthusiasm and knowledge of the game showed by the crowd, which included a group of about 100 fans that made the trip from Middle Tennessee.

"In Nashville, we're used to having the greatest fans in the world," then-Predators forward Scott Walker said at the time. "And, the Japanese fans and our fans continued that over here. It made us feel right at home."
