Predators to Host Smashville Celebration Friday, May 8th

Hockey may be over for us, but it looks like you'll get one more crack at having some fun at Bridgestone before we officially hit summer. An open skate, some instruction for kids, locker room tours, and an autograph signing session with Victor Bartley...all this Friday from 5p-8p. If you like free money, the Preds are giving away a $10 gift card to the pro shop for the first 200 people through the door. And if you're planning on getting tickets for next year, might as well do it when they're giving you something extra($100 gift card for a full season, $50 for a half season). You can read the full release below for all the details.

Oh and one more thing...we'll be giving away a signed Roman Josi puck that you can pick up at the arena Friday night. Make sure to follow us on Twitter for all the details!
