Predators Tickets

Additional Nashville Predators Info

The Nashville Predators have only been around since 1998, and they spent most of the first 15 years either outside of the playoffs or on the fringes of it, usually losing in the first round. In fact, prior to 2016, the Predators had only won two playoff series in franchise history. That has all changed in recent years though. 2017 was the banner year in franchise history. The Predators ran all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals as the 8th seed, taking out the Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues, and Anaheim Ducks along the way before losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the finals. This past season, they were one of three teams in the Western Conference to finish the season with 100 points, and they entered the playoffs as the three seed. They lost in the opening round to the Dallas Stars in six games.

The issues the Predators had were on offense, so with their first-round draft choice, 24th overall, they selected center Phillip Tomasino from Niagra of the Ontario Hockey League. The Predators then made headline news in free agency, adding center Matt Duchene on a seven-year contract on the first day of free agency. Duchene joins a talented roster. Center Ryan Johanson led the team with 64 points a year ago. Team captain and defenseman Roman Josi finished second with 56 points. Center Filip Forsberg finished third with 50 points. If Duchene can boost their offense, this is a tough defensive team that will be even harder to beat than they already are. The Predators are a really good team right now. You should go and watch them play if you have the chance.

In 2006 they finished with the season with a 106 points, and then lost to the San Jose Sharks in five games in round one. Beginning in the mid-2000's the Predators were a perennial playoff team, only missing the playoffs twice in between 2006 and 2012. After two subpar seasons, they returned to the playoffs this season, losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in round one of the playoffs. Another aspect of the organization to note is that the main minor league affiliate of the Predators is the Milwaukee Admirals, who are one of the more well known Minor League clubs in American sports today.

The Predators have a couple of older players, but for the most part they have a bunch of good solid young players on their roster. The Predators young star is center Filip Forsberg, just 20-years of age. By the way, Filip Forsberg is in no way related to Peter Forsberg, one of the greatest goal scorers who ever lived.

The Nashville Predators are one of the NHL's newest teams, having been founded in 1998. They were part of a “group” of cities- Columbus, Ohio, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, and Atlanta, Georgia, that were awarded franchises in June of 1997. The Predators made the playoffs for the first time as a franchise in 2004, when they were eliminated by the Detroit Red Wings in six games in round one.

The Nashville Predators were had an average 2015-2016 season. They Predators finished the season with 96 points, which was good for the 7th seed in the Western Confernce playoffs. The Predators faced off against the Anaheim Ducks due to the NHL's unusual way of matching up playoff seedings. Nashville pulled a big upset, defeating the Ducks in seven games. In round two of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, they faced off against the San Jose Sharks, and that series went seven games as well before the Sharks finally put the Predators away. Still, a good run though. Entering the offseason, the Predators needed to do something about being 19th in goals allowed and 24th in penalty kill. They traded for defenseman P.K. Subban and drafted defenseman Dante Fabro in round one.
