Wednesday afternoon, newly signed Nashville Predators Barret Jackman and Cody Hodgson addressed the media at development camp at Centennial Sportsplex. Jackman, a defenseman, comes to Nashville after spending his entire career with the St. Louis Blues. Hodgson, a center, was bought out of his contract by the Buffalo Sabres. Head coach Peter Laviolette also addressed both signings.

In a unique moment near the end of his press conference, David Poile presented Jackman with two plush Gnash dolls for Jackman’s children who were apparently a little scared about their move to Nashville.
