The Nashville Predators are nearing the halfway mark of the 2022-2023 NHL season. This season the Predators have dressed some new faces in the lineup, some of which were picked up in trades and some of which have been developed by the organization.
The Predators currently hold the 6th place in the Central Division with a record of 16-14-6 (38 points). They are three spots out of a Wild Card position with games in hand on all teams ahead of them with the exception of the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild.
While the team is struggling as a whole there has been some positives to these new faces in the lineup. It has forced Head Coach John Hynes to make a lot of roster adjustments to find the right spot in the starting lineup for these new faces that joined over the offseason.
Let’s take a look at how these players got to Nashville and the impact they have had on the team so far in 2022-23.
