After facing the New Jersey Devils a year ago, SC Bern will get to go up against another NHL-team next autumn, namely the Nashville Predators. The two squads will hold an exhibition game at the Post Finance Arena before the Preds head to Prague to play their season opener versus the Boston Bruins.

With Nashville coming to Bern, Preds-captain Roman Josi will get to face his old team. There is a chance that his fellow defenseman, Yannick Weber, will also have the same opportunity, but the contract of the former SCB-junior runs out next summer.

"It's really great for me and Yannick to get to play a game in Bern. Before coming to North America, Bern was the only team I had ever played for while growing up, and I watched them play when I was little. I grew up five minutes away from their rink and it's my hometown club - it's going to be so special for me, and I can't wait for the game," Josi states in the Predators' press release.
