Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne
will be out for at least one month with a hip injury.
Rinne has gone 4-4-1 with a 2.31 goals-against average and .931 save
percentage thus far.
The 30-year-old Finnish backstop underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his
hip in early May, which took roughly four months to be properly rehabilitated.
Rinne finished with more losses than victories for the first time in his
career during the truncated 2013 season, compiling a 15-16-8 record with five
shutouts, a 2.43 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.
To fill the roster spot, the Preds recalled goaltender Magnus Hellberg from
Milwaukee of the American Hockey League.
