NO RSVP'S YET: In Nashville, Josh Cooper notes Predators players in recent years “have donated their time in honor” of the team’s former associate coach Brent Peterson, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in ’03. The team every year “hosts a dinner/silent auction and golf tournament” to benefit the Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s. But with the Sept. 15 lockout deadline looming, the function, scheduled for Sept. 17-18, “may see some high-profile no-shows.” Following the lockout, it is “unclear what team-related functions they would be allowed to participate in.” Predators D Shea Weber said, “Guys here want to do anything to support Brent Peterson and the Parkinson’s foundation because he’s a great person, so we will do anything we can do to help him. But we’re not sure on what we’re supposed to do and not do” (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 9/12).
