 The Nashville Predators' Stanley Cup Final run made a huge economic impact on the city.

The Predators and city officials held an end-of-season press conference on Thursday and estimated there was $8 million in economic impact per game during the final.

"What a run, what a ride," Mayor Megan Barry said, adding that the Preds were incredible and made the city proud.

Being a good sport, Barry also honored a friendly wager made with Pittsburgh city officials - by donning a Penguins jersey.  

Sean Henry, President of the Predators, said there will be a draft party coming up for fans to get ready for the next season. He also thanked fans for their passion, support and for creating something unique.

The team’s playoff run also brought in a lot of support for the community, much of that through the Predators Foundation.
