As the season has been put on an definite pause, we can start getting updates on how the big time prospects are doing for the Nashville Predators. Egor Afanasyev is a top prospect in the Nashville Predators organization currently.
It has been known for a while now that Juuse Saros is the Nashville Predators’ future goalie. The young Finn has backed up long-time Predators’ great Pekka Rinne for the past three-plus seasons, waiting, learning and developing.
A long and successful career for Dan Hamhuis is coming close to the end. He’s had a great and respected run with the Nashville Predators. A storied and respectable NHL career by Hamhuis didn’t translate much to this past season with the Predators.
