Nashville wants future NHL All-Star Game

The Nashville Predators have entered a bid to host the NHL All-Star Game within the next five years, according to The Tennessean.

The team reportedly informed city officials earlier this month they want the event in 2016, 2017, 2018 or 2019. However, if the NHL participates in the Winter Olympics in South Korea, a 2018 date would likely be off the table.

From the article:

Bill Daly, the NHL’s deputy commissioner, said in an email that he couldn’t comment on individual applications.
But he said he hopes the league “will be in a position to make an announcement on the 2016 All-Star Game” by July 1.
Daly declined to say how many cities are in the hunt for that game.

Sounds like we may know the next host of the All-Star Game by Tuesday, so stay tuned!

If Nashville gets the game, what do you imagine the logo would look like? And could we potentially see gold versus blue all-star jerseys?

Meantime, Columbus will finally host the 2015 game this season after its 2013 game was lost to the lockout. While the logo has been around for three years, we're still waiting to see jersey designs.
