High School Hockey At Sommet Center
- 18 teams will play nine games on Sommet Center ice from October to January -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 13, 2008) – The Nashville Predators and Greater Nashville Area Scholastic Hockey (GNASH) league are partnering during the 2008-09 season for the “Featured High School Game of the Week,” a series of nine regular season games that will see all 18 GNASH squads, and a total of 24 schools, play a game on Sommet Center ice. All games will take place on Predators Saturday, game days from Oct. 18-Jan. 17.

“This program, along with several other youth hockey initiatives is another example of the investments our local ownership group has made to grow hockey in the Middle Tennessee area,” Predators President of Business Operations Ed Lang said.

The game of the week series is part of a league-wide fundraiser that gives GNASH the opportunity to raise $15,000 by selling more than 3,000 tickets to Predator games. This also marks the first of several youth hockey league ticket fundraisers established by the Predators this season.

The Nashville Predators continue their efforts to enhance the awareness and opportunity of youth and amateur hockey in Middle Tennessee. The Predators have created partnerships with local youth hockey associations and assist with fundraising, hockey education and additional ice time to promote the growth of the sport at the grassroots level.

"GNASH is excited about our partnership with the Predators to showcase the skill level and competition of High School Hockey in middle Tennessee,” said Joe Griffen, GNASH league president. “Working together we can attract both players and fans to our sport and our league."
Greater Nashville Area Scholastic Hockey (GNASH) League is a non-profit organization which supports the growth and quality of high school ice hockey in middle Tennessee. Currently, there are 24 high schools represented in the GNASH League made up of 18 teams. For more information on high school ice hockey in middle Tennessee, visit www.gnashockey.com
