Top Juuse Saros News

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Injury clarified

    Saros said he felt a pop when he injured his ankle versus the Flames on April 26, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Saros also confirmed that he has returned to skating and likely would have been ready in a few weeks. The 27-year-old should have plenty of time to heal up ahead of the 2022-23 campaign, where he'll presumably serve as the Predators' top goalie again. He finished 2022-23 with a 38-25-3 record, a 2.64 GAA and a .918 save percentage in a career-high 67 games.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Ruled out for Game 4

    Saros (lower body) won't be available for Game 4 against the Avalanche on Monday, per coach John Hynes, Nick Cotsonika of NHL.com reports.

    The Predators have fallen into a 3-0 hole without their starting goaltender and won't have him available as they face elimination Monday. Barring a surprising victory by his team to keep the season going, Saros will have missed every playoff game after getting his team there with a 38-win regular season. Game 5 would be Wednesday if necessary.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Won't be available for Game 3

    Saros (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 3 against the Avalanche, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    The Predators are already down 2-0 to Colorado in the series, so Saros may not have enough time to heal up and return to action before Nashville is eliminated. With Saros on the shelf and David Rittich struggling, Connor Ingram will get the start in goal Saturday against the Avalanche.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Might be ready soon

    Saros (lower body) could be cleared to play for Game 3 or 4 versus the Avalanche back in Nashville, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Saros is coming off a career year in which he set new highs in games (67) and wins (38). Without the 27-year-old Finn available, the Predators will look to Connor Ingram for Game 2 in Colorado. Whenever cleared to play, Saros should immediately reclaim his place between the pipes.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Missing next two games

    Saros (lower body) will be out for at least the first two games of the first-round series against Colorado, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    With Saros out, David Rittich will most likely start the first two games of the series. The 27-year-old is traveling with the team, which is a good sign, but it's unclear how much more time he's expected to miss. He finished the regular season with a .918 save percentage compared to Rittich's .886 mark.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Availability in doubt

    Saros, who's dealing with a lower-body injury, may be in danger of missing time during Nashville's first-round playoff series, DailyFaceoff's Frank Seravalli reports.

    Saros exited Tuesday's loss to the Flames with a lower-body injury, and it appears as though the initial prognosis was "less than encouraging," per Seravalli. If Saros is forced to miss postseason action, David Rittich will take over as the Predators' No. 1 netminder with youngster Connor Ingram serving as the No. 2 option.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Won't return during regular season

    Saros (lower body) won't be available for the final two regular-season games of the campaign.

    This is disastrous news for the Predators, who clinched a spot in the playoffs by picking up a point in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Flames. For now, David Rittich will take over as Nashville's No. 1 netminder.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Limps to locker room

    Saros (lower body) limped to the locker room in the third period, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    Saros left the game and was seen gingerly making his way to the locker room with the Predators holding a 4-3 lead. David Rittich replaced him in the contest. The 27-year-old Saros has been a workhorse all season, so any additional time missed would had massive implications for the Predators going forward.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Facing Flames

    Saros will patrol the crease during Tuesday's home game versus Calgary, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Saros struggled in his last start Saturday against Tampa Bay, surrendering six goals on 30 shots before being replaced by David Rittich in the third period of the eventual 6-2 loss. He'll try to shake off that poor performance and return to the win column in a home matchup with a Flames squad that's averaging 3.37 goals per game on the road this year, eighth in the NHL.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Pulled after sixth goal

    Saros allowed six goals on 30 shots Saturday before being pulled at 2:08 of the third period. The Predators lost 6-2 to the Lightning.

    It was a wild first with the Bolts going up 3-1 on goals by Victor Hedman, Anthony Cirelli and Nikita Kucherov. Saros settled down in the second and the only surrendered a snipe by Steven Stamkos. But the wheels fell off early in the third with goals by Ross Colton at 1:37 and Patrick Maroon at 2:08. Saros has alternated wins and losses over his last eight starts (since April 7) and has been pulled twice in his last three. The Preds are four points up on Vegas for the last wild card spot.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Tending twine Saturday

    Saros will protect the road goal Saturday versus the Lightning.

    Saros has alternated wins and losses in his last seven games, posting a 2.57 GAA and a .906 save percentage in that stretch. The Lightning haven't been as dominant as usual, but they beat the Maple Leafs 8-1 in their last contest, so this could be a challenging matchup for Saros.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Picks up win in shootout

    Saros stopped 19 of 21 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flames.

    Saros also stopped all four of Calgary's shootout attempts to earn the victory. It was a nice bounce-back performance from Saros, who was yanked from his last start after allowing four goals on 20 shots. Saros leads the league with 38 wins while sporting a .920 save percentage.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Facing Flames

    Saros will guard the home cage during Tuesday's matchup with Calgary, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Saros was shaky in his last start Sunday against the Blues, surrendering four goals on just 20 shots en route to an 8-3 loss. He'll try to get back in the win column in a home matchup with a Flames team that's averaging 3.41 goals per game on the road this year, seventh in the NHL.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Chased by Blues

    Saros allowed four goals on 20 shots before being pulled from Sunday's 8-3 loss to the Blues.

    Saros was removed 31 seconds before the game's halfway point and backup David Rittich didn't fare any better the rest of the way, allowing four goals on just 13 shots. While Saros is prone to more clunkers than the league's top goalies, his workhorse role in Nashville's net has made him one of this season's most effective fantasy netminders, and he still leads the league in wins with 37.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Tending twine Sunday

    Saros will get the starting nod Sunday at home against the Blues.

    Saros will start on back-to-back days after earning a win over the Blackhawks on Saturday. The 26-year-old improved to 37-23-3 with a 2.53 GAA and a .921 save percentage this season. However, he's struggled against the Blues; Saros is 0-2-0 while allowing 10 goals on 62 shots in two matchups with St. Louis.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Extends league lead in wins

    Saros made 28 saves in Saturday's 4-3 win over Chicago.

    It wasn't his best performance, but Saros still came away with his league-leading 37th win of the season, including an 8-4-0 mark over his last 12 starts. The 26-year-old sports a solid 2.53 GAA and .921 save percentage on the season.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Starting matinee matchup

    Saros will guard the home goal during Saturday's clash with Chicago.

    Saros wasn't great in his last start Thursday against the Oilers, surrendering four goals on 32 shots en route to a 4-0 loss. He'll try to shake off that sub-par performance and return to the win column in a favorable home matchup with a Blackhawks team that's averaging 2.61 goals per game on the road this year, 24th in the NHL.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Gives up four Thursday

    Saros allowed four goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 4-0 loss to Edmonton.

    For the second game in a row, Saros' teammates didn't score a goal in regulation. The previous time, he shut out the Sharks and Nashville's offense broke through in overtime. Saros couldn't replicate that performance in this one, though, with Leon Draisaitl scoring three of the four goals against him. This result dropped Saros' record to 36-23-3 along with a 2.53 GAA and .921 save percentage.
