Don’t look now, but hockey and the Nashville Predators are inching closer and closer to resuming.

Many look to social media to fill that hole that’s missing in their current sports lives. We’re checking in on some of our favorite Nashville Predators players and the team to see what they have been up to this week.

There’s always a lot to check out on the Predators’ social media sites. We are fortunate that the Predators have such a  great social media team and players who are willing to connect with their fans.

More from Predlines

Until we get back to some sense of normalcy in the sports world, we’ll be following the team and players closely to see how they’re passing the time and staying ready to go if and when the season continues.

In this week’s check-in with the Nashville Predators, we’re taking a look at some fun things that happened this week.

Josi For Norris

We are biased, but we think that Captain Roman Josi makes a good case for the Norris Trophy. Check out his incredible stats below. Predators fans everywhere need to Tweet #Josi4Norris and #Preds.

Shea Weber got snubbed for the Norris Trophy once upon a time, but hopefully that doesn’t happen again with Josi. It will be a travesty if so.

Josi outweighs everyone else in metrics and all-around numbers with the exception of total points. You can’t make the pick based solely on points alone.

Masterson Trophy Nomination

The Professional Hockey Writers Association, Nashville Chapter, has nominated the Predators Jarred Tinordi to win the Masterson Trophy.

This trophy is awarded to the player “who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.” Good luck, Jarred!

Who Doesn’t Like Dogs?

Our favorite mascot, Gnash, took two good boys out for a walk around Nashville on Monday. Gnash took the Predators’ team dog, Smash, and the Admirals’ team dog, Bender, out for a stroll around Nashville.

Kind of strange to see a cat taking dogs out for a walk but whatever.

Fond Memories

Hopefully we’ll see some playoff hockey in a couple of months. Here’s a quick look back to 2004 at the first-ever playoff win for the Predators.

Were any of you there? Comment below and let us know.

Chef Nick

Nick Bonino was the first guest on the NHL’s new cooking show, Skates and Plates. Nick was coached on how to cook a steak dish by Chef Ludo Lefebvre. Skates and Plates will air Wednesday afternoons at 3 p.m. CT on NBCSN. Now I want a steak.

During these trying times, it’s good that we can continue to follow our favorite teams on social media to help provide some form of comfort and normalcy.
