Coach Trotz has a close relationship with C.A.P.E., his 7-year-old son, Nolan suffers from Down Syndrome. Trotz and Nolan served as guest coaches for the blue team; former Dixie Flyer Stoddard served as guest coach for the orange team; and “Partner” dropped the ceremonial puck drop. Gnash was on hand to cheer on the kids and their families.
The Nashville Predators relationship with C.A.P.E. extends beyond the Hockeyfest event. C.A.P.E. participates in the Predators Street Pride street hockey program. Through this NHL supported program, the Preds partner with youth community centers to donate street hockey equipment, nets, balls and program support. Street Pride takes hockey off the ice and into the streets to help kids get into the game and break down any socio-economic (or physical) barriers to the sport of hockey - all a kid needs to play are sneakers!
