Nashville Predators® History

The Predators joined the NHL® in 1998 during a two-year expansion that saw the League add the Atlanta Thrashers, Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild. The team made its first trip to the Playoffs during the 2003-04 season, and proceeded to the postseason six of the next seven seasons. Nashville won its first Playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks in 2011, and returned to the second round again the following spring.

Two seasons later, with Peter Laviolette as Head Coach, Nashville began their four-year run as a Playoff contender. With P.K. Subban arriving ahead of the 2016-17 season to anchor the defense, the Preds upset the Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Ducks in consecutive Playoff series to reach the 2017 Stanley Cup® Final. That streak had two distinctions: It was the first time a No. 8 seed knocked out a top seed (the Blackhawks) and the Predators became the first team in two decades to win 10 consecutive home Playoff games.

Facing the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup® Final, the Preds lost the first two games before storming back to take Games 3 and 4. After a decisive Pittsburgh home victory, the Penguins prevailed 2-0 in Game 6, with both goals coming in the final two minutes.

Filip Forsberg, who re-signed with the team for eight seasons in July 2022, is the Predators all-time leading scorer. Roman Josi (Norris), Pekka Rinne (Vezina), Mike Fisher (NHL® Foundation) and Steve Sullivan (Masterton) have all won NHL® awards, while Josi (twice), Rinne and former captain Shea Weber (twice) have the distinction of being NHL® First-Team All-Stars for the club. The Nashville Predators® have made the Playoffs 15 times in their 23 seasons.

    by JLew on 4/18/23Bridgestone Arena Nashville Predators - Nashville

    Had an absolute blast at the game. Was my first time going to not only a Preds game but a NHL game. The stadium was amazing, our seats were great, and the game was exciting! Can’t wait to come back for more! Go Preds!

    It was okay...

    by nywku on 4/17/23Bridgestone Arena Nashville Predators - Nashville

    Fan Appreciation night was really fun; I loved to go home with a free towel. However, up in the 3rd level it was SO LOUD! I think they could probably turn the volume down a little overall. Every time music was going or someone talking, my Apple Watch kept telling me it was 90+ decibels (and long-term exposure could cause temporary hearing loss.). I went to a hockey game, not a concert.

    First time in Smashville

    by Bolts fan 772 on 4/17/23Bridgestone Arena Nashville Predators - Nashville

    This arena is awesome. It’s in the heart of downtown Nashville, my friends and I came right out of Broadway’s finest honky tonks to this fine facility. Preds fans were streaming in to see the final game of the season, despite missing the playoffs they still cheered hard for their guys. Met nothing but nice folks in the rows around us, lots of first time visitors! The energy in the arena is contagious-we were all joining in the chants and the cheers before long. All in all, terrific experience!
