Nashville Jr. Predators Reach the Silver Stick National Minor Tournament

The Nashville Jr. Predators Squirt Minor Team captured the Championship at the Silver Stick Regional Mid-America Tournament this past weekend in Cincinnati, Ohio. The team went an impressive 4-1 during the regional tournament with round-robin victories over the Ohio Blue Jackets, the Toledo Cherokee and the Pittsburgh Aviators as they advanced to the Regional Championship game against the Indiana Jr. Ice.

The Jr. Predators pulled off a dramatic 4-3 win over the Jr. Ice in Sunday afternoon's title game. With the teams knotted at three goals apiece in the final period, Jr. Preds defenseman Sebastien Cigarran scored with less than two minutes remaining to seal the championship for Nashville.

With the victory, the Jr. Preds advance to the Silver Stick National Minor Tournament in Newmarket, Ont., on Jan. 10-13, 2013.

The Nashville Jr. Preds is an AA travel program comprised of Nashville area youth – fielding 10 teams from ages 8-and-under (U8) to 18-and-under (U18) – and is the official youth hockey association associated with the Nashville Predators. Teams practice at both A-Game in Cool Springs and Centennial Sportsplex in Nashville. The program is currently in its second year of existence. The Nashville Predators have partnered with the Nashville Jr. Preds to help offset travel costs through fundraisers. A portion of tickets sold at nashvillepredators.com/jrpredsnight for select Nashville Predators games benefit the Jr. Preds organization.
