What better way to celebrate the contract signing of Nashville's first home-grown prospect than by conducting the press conference at his old elementary school? This came from Blake Geoffrion via Twitter today:

Its true I am signing a two year deal with the Predators. Press conference will be at my elementry school in brentwood, which is Granberry Elementry everyone is welcome to come. Hope to see a lot of preds fans there its at 2 o'clock on tuesday the 15th.

UPDATE: Based on the subsequent deletion of those tweets and word from the team, the signing is meant to be more of a press conference than a public, open event. I don't think they're prepared to handle a wave of Predators fans attending!

This is a nice touch by Blake and the team, marking a real milestone for the Nashville hockey community.
