Think you're up to speed on Twitter, Facebook, & the rest of the social networking sites out there? If you do, you have a chance to talk about it with an NHL franchise.

On March 24th, the Nashville Predators will be hosting what they call "Social Media Suite Night" as they take on the Winnipeg Jets.  For a price of $180 a ticket, you'll be in for an entire night of discussion with various employees from the club. According to the club, you'll be able to speak with the Director of Hockey Operations Brian Poile about the X's and O's and Doug Brumley, who is the Digital Media and Marketing Coordinator. You'll also have he pleasure of being visited by a Preds player who won't be participating in the game as well as the team mascot - Gnash. All food and beverages are provided by the team in your suite environment and at each participant will receive an autographed item.

If you'd like to order tickets for this event, you can do so in the link below. You might want to make your decision quickly - as there are only 20 tickets available for this event.

Nashville Predators Social Media Suite Night Part II

If you're a fan of the Predators or keep an eye on franchises, this will mark the second time the Predators have put this special night together. Social Media Suite Night Part I took place on Tuesday, December 13th, 2011 against the Calgary Flames. To my knowledge, the Preds are one of the few teams that have tested the waters of incorporating a social media event during a game. I know there have been other clubs that have held social media happy hours and the like, but an actual closed doors (open online) event? Someone likes to think outside the box.

What will be interesting to see is if other NHL franchises catch on and decide to hold their own social media event during the game. Will this be something that will catch fire or will it be a 1 or 2 team thing? Should they even continue these series of events?
