- Hockey doubleheader includes Vanderbilt University Alumni Game; proceeds go to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt -

Nashville, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have partnered with the Southern Professional Hockey League’s Knoxville Ice Bears to bring hockey to Bridgestone Arena on Oct. 20.

The SPHL preseason contest, which sees the Ice Bears take on the Huntsville Havoc at 7 p.m. CT, completes an afternoon of on-ice events starting with an Adult Skills Development Clinic at 1:30 p.m. CT, followed by a Vanderbilt University Alumni game at 4 p.m.

Tickets to the hockey doubleheader – presented by 102.5 The Game – are free for Predators season ticketholders and $10.25 to the public. Proceeds from the gate – and other fundraisers throughout the arena – will go to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt as part of the Nashville Predators’ We Care for Kids program in conjunction with the National Hockey League’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative. Season Ticket Holders may visit smashvillerewards.com to access their tickets. Tickets may be purchased by calling (615) 770-7800 or stopping by the Bridgestone Arena Box Office.

“Bringing an Ice Bears game to Bridgestone Arena is another way to give back to our season ticketholders and engage our partners,” Predators Executive Vice President of Sales Chris Parker said. “Their rivalry with Huntsville is the perfect centerpiece for a great Saturday full of hockey in Nashville.”

As part of their active relationship with the Predators, the Knoxville Ice Bears will also be hosting a Nashville Predators Night on Nov. 17 at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum, with the Ice Bears wearing Predators-themed jerseys and members of the Predators organization in attendance.

The Vanderbilt Alumni game starts the doubleheader at 4 p.m. CT, and will see current Vanderbilt Hockey players take on Vandy Alumni Hockey players.

The day will start with the Nashville Predators offering an opportunity for adult novice hockey players/goalies to participate in a skill development clinic from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Qualified instructors will include members of the Nashville Predators Coaching staff, broadcasters Terry Crisp and Stu Grimson, and other Preds staff members. The clinic will focus on skill stations covering basic hockey skills such as skating, stick handling, shooting, passing, and goalie positioning, movement, puck-handling, and small-area games in a fun environment as supported through a set of guidelines designed specifically to help players reach their full potential through the USA Hockey American Development Model.

Cost is $50 per participant and includes a tour of the Preds locker room, 90-minutes of on-ice instruction and two tickets to an upcoming Preds weeknight home game. Space is limited to four goaltenders and 30 players. Registered Season Ticket Holders will earn 1,000 Smashville Reward Points. To register, or for more information visit nashvillepredators.com.
