Nashville Predators Training Camp Schedule Announced

Will Seth Jones go right from the handshake line at the NHL Draft to the Nashville Predators' lineup? - Bruce Bennett

After a seemingly interminable summer, hockey is once again on the radar as the Nashville Predators Rookie Camp opens later this week, and the overall training camp begins next Wednesday. This morning, the team released the official schedule and roster for the sessions which will lead up to the regular season opener on October 3rd at St. Louis.

The Preds press release reads:

Nashville Predators Training Camp will open with physicals, on-ice testing and a team meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at Bridgestone Arena, with the team’s first day on the ice coming Thursday, Sept. 12 at 9:30 a.m. at Centennial Sportsplex. A complete training camp roster and schedule is below. Dates, times and roster are subject to change.

For the first time since the 2006-07 season, the Predators will conduct training camp sessions away from the Music City. The team will conduct two days of camp at Germain Arena in Naples, Fla., on Sept. 17-18, bookended by preseason contests at Florida (doubleheader on Sept. 16 at 1:30 and 6 p.m. CT) and Tampa Bay (Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. CT). The Predators will also spend two days practicing at the United States Naval Academy on Sept. 26-27, with two more preseason games on Sept. 25 at Washington (6 p.m. CT) and Sept. 27 at NY Islanders (6 p.m. CT). Sessions in Nashville from Sept. 12-15 and Sept. 21 will be held at Centennial Sportsplex, with those from Sept. 22-25 and Sept. 29-30 coming at Bridgestone Arena. All practices at the Sportsplex are free and open to the public.

Sixty players will attend 2013 Training Camp – 44 players under contract with Nashville, eight on American Hockey League contracts with Milwaukee, six on tryout agreements and two unsigned draft picks. Thirty-four are forwards, 19 are defensemen and seven are goaltenders.
