NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — When the puck drops on the 2021 NHL season, there will be fans at Bridgestone Arena.

Metro Public Health officials announced Tuesday the Preds are allowed to have a maximum of 15% of capacity inside Bridgestone Arena for games through the month of January.

Nashville will open the season at home on January 14 against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The NHL approved a 56-game regular season earlier this month.

No word on if the capacity cap will change as the season progresses.
