Predators To Host 2010 Skate of the Union
2009 Skate of the Union Recap:
Fans in search of a mid-summer hockey fix need look no further than the Nashville Predators annual Skate of the Union event, held this Thursday, July 8 from 4-8 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena.

This free event will feature a “Skate of the Union” address on the present and future of the Nashville Predators by President of Hockey Operations David Poile, President of Business Operations Ed Lang, Head Coach Barry Trotz, and Chairman Tom Cigarran. Also included in the panel will be recent free agency signee Matthew Lombardi. The address will highlight the Predators 2010 draft picks, NHL free agency signings and an overview of the 2010-11 team and season schedule. Poile, Lang, Trotz and Cigarran will speak with fans, answer questions and address issues on everything from hockey operations to business initiatives. The panel will be hosted by Nashville Predators Play-by-Play Announcer Pete Weber and fans may submit questions for the panel upon entering Bridgestone Arena.

The event boasts autograph opportunities with Predators defenseman Ryan Parent, forward Joel Ward and recent Predators first-round draft picks. A photo opportunity will be available with Predators prospect and Brentwood, Tenn. native Blake Geoffrion along with his 2010 Hobey Baker Award – given to the top National Collegiate Athletic Association men's ice hockey player.

The event also features a used-equipment sale, where fans will have the opportunity to purchase game and practice-worn equipment, as well as opportunities to purchase season tickets. Fans will be treated with free popcorn and sodas courtesy of DNC Sportservice. The Nashville Predators pro shop will also be open.
