Cody Hodgson has taken his talents to the Nashville Predators' youth hockey program, an initiative which aims to teach the fundamentals of hockey.

Hodgson joins fellow Predators alumni in teaching hockey skills as part of the Little Preds Learn to Play program. Offered at six rinks across Tennessee, Alabama, and Indiana, the program attracts more than 1,200 participants from ages 4 to 8.

Hodgson appeared in 39 games with the Predators last season, while also splitting time with the minor-league affiliate in Milwaukee.

The 26-year-old did not receive a qualifying offer from the Predators in the summer, becoming an unrestricted free agent.

Drafted 10th overall by Vancouver in 2008, Hodgson made his debut with the Canucks in 2010. He was dealt to the Buffalo Sabres in 2012 and joined the Predators three years later.
