The Nashville Predators organization emailed a statement to all season ticket holders regarding the lockout. Read it after the jump.



As of today, the NHL and NHLPA have been unable to reach terms on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (“CBA”).  The NHL season will not commence until the parties agree upon a successor CBA.  The National Hockey League has been, and remains, committed to negotiating around the clock to reach a new agreement that will allow for long-term success and growth for the game we all love.

Currently, we are constructing a plan that will protect and reward our most loyal fans, our Season Ticket Holders.  In the hope of a quick resolution, you will be receiving your season ticket packages later this week.  Additionally, we will freeze all season ticket payments until a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is signed between the NHL and NHLPA.  We will update you on the CBA negotiations as appropriate developments occur.  Please visit nashvillepredators.com for other news regarding the Predators and Bridgestone Arena.

When the NHL season commences, your Nashville Predators are well-positioned to compete for the Stanley Cup.  Our cornerstone players, Shea Weber and Pekka Rinne, are locked up for years to come while this off-season we also re-signed core veterans Hal Gill, Paul Gaustad, Sergei Kostitsyn and Mike Fisher. Veteran free agent defenseman Scott Hannan was also brought in to round out the defensive core and the maturation of future stars like Colin Wilson, Craig Smith, Ryan Ellis and Roman Josi helps create a foundation for long-term success.

We look forward to continuing to focus on our mission: building and working toward a Stanley Cup-winning Nashville Predators team as the centerpiece of Bridgestone Arena. Once a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is in place, we are prepared to contend for the Stanley Cup on an annual basis with a team anchored by one of the top goaltenders and top defensemen in the game.

Thank you for your support and we can't wait for the 2012-13 season to start.
