Predators Recall Rinne From AHL
Nashville, Tenn. (March 22, 2008) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Pekka Rinne (PECK-ah REEN-ay) from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Rinne, 25 (11/3/82), currently leads the AHL in both games played (60) and wins (33), and is 6-0-0 with a .924 save percentage and a 2.00 goals-against average in his past six starts for the Admirals. The Kempele, Finland native appeared in two games for the Predators in 2005-06, and posted a win in his first NHL start on December 15, 2005. Rinne has also represented Milwaukee in the AHL All-Star Classic the past two seasons.

Originally Nashville’s 10th choice, 258th overall (eighth round), in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Rinne captured the Finnish Elite League championship in two straight seasons as a member of Karpat Oulu before coming to North America in 2005.

The Predators (36-30-8) host Central Division rivals for their next two contests, taking on the Chicago Blackhawks (35-32-7) Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. and the Columbus Blue Jackets (33-30-11) Tuesday night at 7 p.m. Saturday’s matinee is sold out, but tickets for Tuesday’s game are still available and may be purchased at the Sommet Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets or by calling (615) 770-PUCK. They may also be purchased at www.nashvillepredators.com or www.ticketmaster.com.
