How to Join the Preds in Supporting the Covenant School

Before Saturday’s 12:00 puck drop against the St. Louis Blues, the Predators will offer a moment of silence for prayer and/or reflection. Coaches and announcers from both teams will wear red and white lapel pins, and fans attending the game are encouraged to wear red and white, the colors of the Covenant School.
The Preds are committed to honoring and valuing first responders, teachers and school administrators, and to doing everything as an organization to help the Covenant family heal from this unspeakable tragedy.
