  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Inks three-year deal with Predators

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/16/18) Saros signed a three-year, $4.5 million contract with Nashville on Monday.

    Saros has established himself as one of the league's best backup goaltenders behind Pekka Rinne in Nashville. He appeared in 26 games last season, registering a 2.44 GAA and .925 save percentage alongside an 11-5-7 record. He should continue posting strong numbers but won't have much fantasy value as long as he remains in a backup role.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Garners qualifying offer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/26/18) Saros was issued a qualifying offer by the Predators on Monday.

    There's been wide speculation that Saros will emerge as the No. 1 goalie in Nashville next season. No. 1 goalie Pekka Rinne has one year left on his contract at $7 million, but he'll be tough to retain, especially on the heels of winning the 2018 Vezina Trophy for top goaltender. Saros has a career 21-14-10 record, 2.42 GAA and .923 save percentage since joining the team in April of 2013.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Gets work in season-ending loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Saros stopped 14 of 16 shots in relief of an ineffective Pekka Rinne during Thursday's 5-1, Game 7 loss to the Jets.

    Rinne looked completely out of sorts in the early going, allowing a pair of soft goals on seven shots in the first 10:47. His understudy wasn't tested much in relief, but Saros ended up surrendering two goals as well before Winnipeg sealed it with an empty-netter. If Rinne's poor performance in this series is a sign of things to come, Saros is likely to get more work next season.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Makes six saves in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/18) Saros stopped six shots during 13:37 in relief for Pekka Rinne, who was pulled after yielding six goals against the Jets on Friday. The Jets won 6-2 and lead the second-round series 3-2.

    Similar to his previous mop up work this postseason, Saros wasn't tested much, but he also hasn't yielded a goal. In three appearances, he's perfect, making 26 saves in just over three periods of work. Despite this fine play, Rinne is still the man in Nashville, and if he has anymore slip ups, the Predators season will be finished.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Makes two saves in relief

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/28/18) Saros stopped the only two shots he faced during the third period in relief of Pekka Rinne in a 4-1 loss to the Jets on Friday night. The Jets lead the second-round series, 1-0.

    The 22-year-old walked away from his second relief appearance this postseason unscathed, but in this one, the play was away from his net nearly the entire period, as Saros saw just two shots in 18:00. The Jets' third shot of the third period was an empty-net goal that sealed the victory. Saros has stopped 20 of 20 this postseason, but Pekka Rinne will have to continue to struggle in order for Saros to earn a start in this series.
