Rookie games against Nashville will be Sept. 15 and 16

Per the Predators' press release:

Date Opponent Site Time (CT)
Mon, Sept. 14 @ Atlanta Thrashers (Rookie Game) Duluth IceForum 6 pm
Tue, Sept. 15 @ Atlanta Thrashers (Rookie Game) Duluth IceForum Noon

"Rookie" is a bit of a misnomer here, since there aren't enough actual NHL rookies to make two teams. These guys entering pro, and those with a year of pro played. Some junior players too, before they get sent back to their clubs. "Prospect" games would be more accurate.

Last year these games were played in Nashville, at the Sommet Center, which is where the Predators play. Atlanta isn't renting out Philips for it though, opting to play them at the training facility. Note that the times given are Central, so this would be 7 pm and 1pm Eastern.
