Today's birthday boy on the Nashville Predators is none other than enforcer Brian McGrattan, who turns 31.

It's been a big year for McGrattan, who finished off a season which saw him notch a couple spots high atop HockeyFights.com's Best of 2011-2012 list, and quickly signed a contract for another year with the Predators this summer. In July he dropped the gloves in order to put on a wedding ring, but for the biggest highlight from the last year, I'm going to go with his talk at the Nashville Salvation Army Sobriety Banquet:
