We are starting to get more information about the NHL’s Return To Play plan. The Nashville Predators will be playing the Arizona Coyotes in the qualifying round.

While we are counting down the days until the playoffs, 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 see 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 when the season continues.

In this week’s check-in with the Predators, we’re taking a look at some fun things that happened from the team, including being named Virtual Stanley Cup champions.

Predators – Virtual Stanley Cup Champs

Last Thursday, the Predators became the virtual Stanley Cup champs when they defeated the Philadelphia Flyers. Now that we have the virtual cup, we want to see Pekka Rinne hoist the real Stanley Cup.

Father’s Day

Fathers’ Day was celebrated on Sunday, June 21. While we saw many great posts from the Predators celebrating fathers, this post features our favorite hockey “Father/Son” duo.

The Boys Will Be Back Soon

We are well into Phase 2 of the Return To Play plan. Phase 3 will be coming up soon. Part of Phase 2 includes small group workouts on the ice. Workers began preparing the ice at Bridgestone Arena. The ice is beautiful.

First Goal – Dan Hamhuis

This weekend the Predators posted another “First Goal” video. This week featured veteran Defenseman, Dan Hamhuis. Dan scored his first NHL goal in 2003. To put that into perspective, Juuse Saros was eight years old at the time.

Get To Know Granny

The Predators’ social media team posted a short clip called “You Auto-Complete Me” featuring Mikael Granlund. Rink reporter Kara Hammer asks Granlund some common questions about himself that pop up on the internet.
