The 2012–13 Nashville Predators season was the team's 15th season in the National Hockey League (NHL). The regular season was reduced from its usual 82 games to 48 due to the 2012–13 NHL lockout.

Off-seasonEdit

After already losing one half of their All-Star defensive core to free agency when Ryan Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild, on July 19, 2012, Shea Weber signed an offer sheet from the Philadelphia Flyers.[2] The Predators had seven days to decide whether to match the offer, opting to do so on July 24 to keep Weber in a Predators uniform.[3]

Regular seasonEdit

The Predators scored 109 goals (excluding three shootout-winning goals) over the lockout-shortened season of 48 games, tied for 30th overall with the Florida Panthers. The Predators were also shut out a league-high nine times, tied with the Phoenix Coyotes.[4][5]
