NHL Lockout 2012: 5 Nashville Predators Pre-season Games Cancelled


Now that we're several days into NHL Lockout 2012, games are starting to get cancelled, pre-season ones anyway:

The NHL's release reads:

The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012 preseason schedule through Sept. 30. In addition, the 2012 Kraft Hockeyville preseason game, scheduled for Oct. 3 in Belleville, Ontario, has been postponed to 2013.

The cancellation of the schedule was necessary because of the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players' Association and the NHL.

While the Kraft Hockeyville game has been postponed, many of the scheduled celebrations in the winning community of Stirling-Rawdon, Ontario, will proceed as planned beginning on September 30.

For the Nashville Predators, this means that five games are cancelled, including two dates at Bridgestone Arena:

Date Opponent Location Time (CT)
Mon, Sept 24 @ Florida Panthers Sunrise, FL 1:30 pm
Mon, Sept 24 @ Florida Panthers Sunrise, FL 6 pm
Tue, Sept 25 ST. LOUIS BLUES Bridgestone Arena 7 pm
Fri, Sept 28 @ Carolina Hurricanes Raleigh, NC 6 pm
Sat, Sept 29 CAROLINA HURRICANES Bridgestone Arena 7 pm

Stay tuned, as I'm guessing it'll be about another week before we may be looking at regular season cancellations, too.
