These jerseys will be worn at the 2020 NHL Winter Classic at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas when the Preds take on the Dallas Stars. From the Preds’ release about the jersey design:
“The new jersey was created with a heritage aesthetic, featuring designs inspired by Nashville’s rich hockey history and its passionate hockey fanbase.
