The Nashville Predators, also known as the Preds, play in the Central Division of the Western Conference of the NHL. The team was founded in 1998 and within 5 years played in their first playoff series. The team has not yet won a Stanley Cup title, but they did play in the finals in the 2016-17 season and were defeated by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Before the team was created, the rumors of an NHL team in Nashville began in 1995. The city offered a $20 million relocation bonus to any team willing to move to the area, and the Devils even tried to break their lease to take advantage of the deal. Before another team could jump at the opportunity, the NHL Commissioner announced that Nashville would likely be a city to receive a team in the next expansion. The reason that Nashville was so keen to have an NHL team is that the city had built an area to try to lure the NBA’s Sacramento Kings to the city, but when that failed, Nashville was left with an empty stadium and eager sports fans.

Since the team’s inception, the name and the logo have remained relatively steady. The first logo, the side profile of a saber-toothed cat with its mouth open, is still seen today, and was first registered for a copyright in 2000. As well as the side profile, the team has a more front on alternate logo that was filed for in 2001.

The team has also utilized the city’s name for phrases or nicknames. The Predators own trademarks for SMASHVILLE and GNASH (a shorter version of GNASHVILLE). One mark that is noticetably missing from the Predators portfolio is “The CellBlock.” Section 303 in the arena is proudly known as The CellBlock since they are the rowdiest and loudest pat of the stadium. The front office has even printed a large banner to recognize the section during the games.
