NASHVILLE (AP) — A new hockey center managed by the Nashville Predators will be constructed at the city's new mixed-use complex in southeast Nashville.

Mayor Karl Dean and Predators officials said on Monday that the facility will also include an expanded branch library, new regional community center and park at the site of the former Hickory Hollow mall, now known as the Global Mall at the Crossings.

"I see this center becoming a hub of learning and recreation for residents in Southeast Davidson County, one of the fastest growing parts of our city," Mayor Dean said in a news release.

According to a news release from the Predators, the city will build and own the $14 million hockey center with two rinks, but the NHL organization will lease it and manage the facility. The entire complex will cost $32 million to build and is expected to open in late summer of 2014.

Predators CEO Jeff Cogen said in the release that more rinks in the community will help grow their fan base and create economic opportunities in the Antioch area.

"More rinks also equal more opportunities for people of all levels and ages to get involved in the game of hockey, growing the Nashville Predators fan base and creating new ambassadors to the sport," Cogen said.
