  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Will go on injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/20/18) Rinne (undisclosed) will be placed on injured reserve, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

    The exact nature of Rinne's injury is still being determined after the reigning Vezina Trophy winner was pulled early in the third period of Friday's road game against the Flames. However, it's not a good sign that the Predators are processing this IR transaction so quickly, as it suggests that he could be dealing with a significant issue. Juuse Saros will tend twine against the Oilers on Saturday after defeating Calgary in relief. Meanwhile, Miroslav Svoboda gets the promotion from AHL Milwaukee.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Exits with possible concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/20/18) Rinne left Friday's game early in the third period with an undisclosed injury after a collision with Kevin Fiala, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports.

    The two got tangled up on a goal by Sam Bennett that tied the score at 3-3, and while Rinne stayed on the ice for a couple of minutes after that, he ended up getting pulled from the game and replaced by Juuse Saros. While the circumstances suggest a possible concussion, the Predators didn't have any immediate word on the netminder's injury.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Tending twine Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/19/18) Rinne will be between the pipes for Friday's road clash with the Flames, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Rinne is 3-1-0 with a shutout and a 1.75 GAA to kick off the season and would appear poised to reach 40-plus wins again this year. The Finn should be able to take some time off the season due to the emergence of backup Juuse Saros, yet will likely still push for the 60-game mark.
