The Nashville Predators announced Wednesday they will host the Tampa Bay Lightning due to Hurricane Irma.

The decision came after the 2017 Rookie Tournament in Estero, Florida was cancelled due to the storm.

The three-game rookie camp series will be held at the Ford Ice Center in Antioch, Tennessee, from Sept. 9-12.

The two teams will face off on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 2 p.m. CT and Sunday, Sept. 10 at 12 p.m. CT before reconvening on Tuesday, Sept. 12 for the final game at 11 a.m CT.

All three games will be open to the public. Along with Nashville's ongoing hurricane relief efforts, the Predators will be collecting $10 donations at the door benefiting Hurricane Irma relief.

The Predators released the full schedule along with the announcement.
