In order to view this page you need JavaScript and Flash Player 9+ support!
Nashville, Tenn. (October 14, 2009) – One of the franchise’s most loved players of all-time, Steve Sullivan, will be recognized at tomorrow night’s game vs. the Chicago Blackhawks for not only his numerous contributions to the Nashville Predators, but also for his amazing comeback last season that earned him the 2009 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

Tomorrow night’s game will feature free Steve Sullivan posters (sponsored by Fidelity Offset) for the first 10,000 fans and a pre-game ceremony honoring Sullivan – or “Sully” as he is affectionately referred to by fans – for his remarkable comeback after rehabilitating from a back injury which kept him out of the Predators lineup for two years. Six-hundred eighty-seven days passed between games for Sullivan, but after missing 142 straight regular-season games and 11 more playoff contests due to a back injury sustained on February 22, 2007, Sullivan returned to the Predators lineup on January 10, 2009 and went on to post 27 points in the final 25 games of the 2008-09 season.

His comeback earned him the 2009 Masterton Trophy – awarded to the NHL player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey," making him the first player in franchise history to claim an NHL Award.

In his five active seasons with the Predators, Sullivan has produced points at close to a point-per-game pace, posting 191 points in 195 games played. He was re-signed in the off season for two more years in Nashville.

Limited tickets are still available for tomorrow night’s matchup vs. the Chicago Blackhawks. To purchase tickets visit NashvillePredators.com, any Ticketmaster outlet, the Sommet Center box office or call (615) 770-PUCK (7825).
