ABOUT THE PREDS CUP
The top high school hockey teams in the state of Tennessee meet to decide the best team at the Predators Cup . The event is held every year in the spring at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville.
This championship game is a taste of the total NHL game experience, consisting of elements such as a ceremonial face-off, a public address announcer, off-ice officials, jumbotron scoreboard and video, music during breaks in play, and locker room accommodations.High school teams from Knoxville, Memphis, and Nashville compete in a qualifying tournament to determine the participants in the Predators Cup. The Nashville Predators established the Predators Cup during the 1999-00 season as part of the team's mission to increase the visibility of hockey on the amateur level in Tennessee.
For the 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013 seasons, the regular season champion will be awarded the GNASH Cup rather than there being a tournament played for it. Our end of year tournament this season will actually be replacing the state tournament (Predators Cup). This change has been instituted due to the inability to field like-competition teams from Memphis and Knoxville this year.
