Predators fans love a good catfish toss. Since 2002, it’s been an oddly common tradition for Nashville fans to toss catfish onto the ice inside Bridgestone Arena. Now, as of Thursday night’s NHL game against Boston, we’ve seen the latest example of the practice.

With the Predators down 4-0 in the second period, you can see a perfectly thrown catfish hit the ice from the corner. It didn’t impact the play but, as a whole, it’s yet again a fairly comical sight.

This ritual has taken on even more life since the Predator’s run to the Stanley Cup Final back in 2017. It’s a hassle to be dealt with on the ice and, for all intents and purposes, not allowed in general. Overall, though, the sport of hockey has some of the most untamed moments in sports and, even in a loss, this hysterical prank native to Music City is just the latest example of that.
