Nashville Predators Training Camp Opens Sept. 11
-First day on the ice comes September 12 at Centennial Sportsplex-
Training camp is moving from Centennial to Bridgestone Arena today! We are making the switch because of some mechanical problems that should be resolved by tomorrow and we should return out there to kick camp off.
The schedule will remain the same and the players should hit the Bridgestone Arena ice at 9:15.
It is open to the public and fans can enter through the parking garage to watch.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
