Patient ambassador Lily Hensiek, center, served as Mayor of Smashville at the Nashville Predators Hockey Fights Cancer Night on Saturday, Nov. 3. Here, Hensiek drops the puck with Predators’ captain Roman Josi, left, and Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chára. Over the past eight years combined, the team has given more than $2 million in donations and in-kind contributions to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and its programs. Hockey Fights Cancer provides an opportunity to bring special guests from Children’s Hospital to Bridgestone Arena and to let the young hockey fans have a one-of-a-kind experience with the Nashville Predators.
