New Dixie Flyers Video Showcases Nashville's Hockey History

You've come a long way, baby. - USA TODAY Sports

Take a trip back in time to Nashville's pro hockey scene of 50 years ago, thanks to new video posted to YouTube.

Long before the Predators came into existence, Nashville enjoyed a series of professional hockey teams, starting with the Eastern Hockey League's Dixie Flyers, who played in Nashville from 1962-1971. As Hockey Hillbilly noted in a FanPost recently, they are Music City's only Cup-winning hockey team, having won championships in 1966 & 1967.

Preds fan Jeremy Dickens (@logickal on Twitter) posted video to YouTube recently of his grandfather's home movies from that time. So kick back for a bit and enjoy a bit of Old Time Hockey...
