Fiala: “I think I’ll go back to Sweden if I don’t make the team”

The Nashville Predators drafted dynamic Swiss forward Kevin Fiala at number 11 overall at the NHL Draft this past June. Typically, only the top few picks crack an opening night NHL roster right out the gate.

Previewing The Nashville Predators

Laviolette is the face of a Nashville reboot as much as James Neal. If Laviolette enjoys early success, many will suggest Poile waited too long to change the culture in the organization. If Laviolette is...

Wearing shiny, unused pads, he stretched and moved as he tried to break in the leather mesh for the first time on the ice. Rinne’s new pads were more metaphorical than stylish. After two major hip operations in the last year, the 6-foot-5, 31-year-old Finn is ready and hoping for a bounce-back...

James Neal's unique shot gives Predators a new weapon

Predators forward James Neal blasted down the wing, skated in on Carter Hutton and quickly zipped a wrist shot high to the goaltender's glove side for a goal. Granted, it happened during informal, player-run drills, but it offered a glimpse into what Neal — a former 40-goal scorer acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins this summer — could be for his new team. "I'...

Predators’ Shea Weber Puts Hole In Boards With Powerful Slap Shot (Video)

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber’s slap shot is one of the most powerful in the NHL. The last time we saw him unleash his shot during a skills challenge was at the 2012 NHL All-Star Skills Competition, where he finished second to Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara in the Hardest Shot portion of the event with a 106 mph blast. During a skate with teammates on Thursday, Weber...
