Joining forces with Smashville 24/7, Nashville Sports Hub

When I started Hockey Night in Nashville back in the summer of 2010, I didn't quite know what I was going to get out of it. I thought it would basically be a place where I could write about a sport that I am passionate about and a place to share my thoughts with the local hockey community in the Nashville area.

It grew into something that I never expected it would have. Over the past two and a half years, I have seen thousands upon thousands of people read posts that I have put out there for the world to see. Words can't really describe how amazing that is to me. I've had the opportunity to grow as a writer, and that experience has been invaluable to me. Because of Hockey Night in Nashville, I've had the chance to meet some incredible people and do things that I never would have been able to do otherwise.

As exciting and rewarding as Hockey Night in Nashville has been, exciting new things are on the horizon for me and also for all of you.

I'm proud to announce that I will be joining Ryan Porth at Smashville 24/7 for Predators coverage, as well as Dirk Hoag and the rest of the staff over at the Nashville Sports Hub, where I'll primarily be covering the Preds, Titans and Vols. I'm extremely excited about these opportunities that I have been given, and I look forward to continuing my dialogue with you all.

Thank you all for making Hockey Night in Nashville what it has become and allowing me to continue to pursue my dream. I will leave Hockey Night in Nashville up and available to view, and I hope to see you all at Smashville 24/7 and the Nashville Sports Hub!

Sincerely,

Robby Stanley
