The preseason finale for the Nashville Predators is tonight after coming off their best performance out of their first five preseason outings.

It’s crunch time for the fringe of the Nashville Predators roster. Three players have to be cut from where the roster currently sits. Who are these potential players?

This late in the preseason, it’s unlikely a team claims a fringe starter unless they have an unexpected injury or a major gap as a rebuilding team.

The Nashville Predators roster currently sits at 26 players, and the finale against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday will feature 20 of those 26 players. They’ll be going up against Carolina’s best players including Sebastian Aho, Michael Bunting, Martin Necas and Brent Burns.

Time to dive into the 20 players playing in the preseason finale, and who will be vying to make one last strong impression to make the Nashville Predators opening night roster on October 10.
