Predators Prospects

The Nashville Predators have a wealthy prospect pool, especially along the blue line. Two defensemen who have impressed at the college level are David Farrance and Dante Fabbro. The sophomore and junior, respectively, have found themselves together on the Boston University Terriers' top defense pair this season.

Nashville Predators

In a recent article, I covered the top-five storylines for the Nashville Predators from the 2018 calendar year. So now that 2018 is wrapped up and we're a week into 2019, I want to predict what I think will be the team's biggest storylines this year.
