PK has done it yet again in Nashville by surprising a few kids with sickle cell anemia with a day they will never forget.
The Predators brought PK in to bring notoriety to the Predators, but they also brought him in because of the wonderful things he does off the ice. PK certainly has found a welcome home in Nashville. If you want to support the great cause PK is championing you can start by checking out his website at pinitforward.co.
World Junior Update
The World Junior Championship is an event every hockey fan should watch. They are really the last bastion of pure international competition in hockey. Not only that, but you get to see future NHL stars emerge on the biggest stage outside of the NHL. Last year, for example, we got to see Patrik Laine step up and show why he has the best shot to come out of the draft since Alex Ovechkin.
This year, the Predators have 3 prospects heading to the World Juniors, which will start on December 26 and end on January 5. I will have an in-depth preview up on Monday, December 26, but for now here are your Predators prospects representing their respective countries.
Dante Fabbro (Canada) Boston University, NCAA
Patrick Harper (USA) Boston University, NCAA
Yakov Trenin (Russia) Gatineau Olympiques, QMJHL
