Nashville Predators star Roman Josi will never forget the date, October 3, 2022.

“It was perfect,” Josi said. “It was really emotional for me and I was a little nervous before the game, just coming back here and skating around in warmups, seeing the big wall again. It was just so special for me and something I’ll never forget.”

Known as “Mr. Bern”, Josi tallied two goals and an assist in the Predators win over his former team in the Swiss National League.

Duchene and Filip Forsberg also scored for Nashville, and Kevin Lankinen made 12 saves in the Predators net. Sven Baertschi, Romain Loeffel and Christopher DiDomenico scored for SC Bern, while goaltender Philip Wuthrich made 16 saves.
