PRAGUE -- When the Nashville Predators and San Jose Sharks appear at O2 Arena on Friday and Saturday (2 p.m. ET; NHLN, BSSO, NBCSCA) in the 2022 NHL Global Series, they will not play preseason games. They will open the 2022-23 NHL regular season.

These games will count.

But the Predators and Sharks are keeping in perspective that each of these games will count for more than two points in the standings. They're balancing business with the bigger picture.

Instead of closing their practices to the public Thursday, the Predators and Sharks opened them. Music played while they skated before a few thousand fans at the arena, including many kids in NHL, Czech and youth jerseys.

"We were all those kids at some point," Predators center Ryan Johansen said, "and it's just cool with our platforms to inspire and encourage and just kind of make their days and show them that their dreams, if they want to play in the NHL, they can reach them."
