The Nashville Predators are holding their annual Development Camp this week in Nashville. The Preds’ picks from this past weekend’s NHL Draft will be in attendance but so will guys like Eeli Tolvanen.
The 19-year-old Forward out of Finland was Nashville’s first round pick in 2017 and made his NHL debut with the Preds this past March. He didn’t play much in the playoffs, however, he did get a taste of what things are like at a professional level and he’s expected to be a part of the team this upcoming season.
He spoke one-on-one this week with News 2 Sports Reporter Kayla Anderson, explaining what this journey has been like and what he is working on this summer to be ready for the 2018-19 season.
