Nashville, Tenn. – Former Nashville Predators player and current Preds Radio analyst Stu Grimson has been named President of the Board by the Nashville Jr. Predators.

“We are so thrilled to have Stu join our organization as President.” Nashville Jr. Predators Vice President Chris Thiesing said. “Stu brings a wealth of knowledge, hockey experience and leadership to the table. He is a ‘get things done’ type of person and that is exactly what the Jr. Predators need! His charm, wit and personality are second-to-none and I anticipate the program to grow exponentially through his involvement.”

In this new role, Grimson will chair board meetings, monitor and support the Hockey Director, monitor and oversee financial obligations and work with parents and board members on the vision for Jr. Predators growth.
