Update on Pekka Rinne

As a follow-up to Pekka Rinne’s MRI earlier this month, we indicated Dec. 20 as a date for further update and next steps relative to Pekka’s recovery from a bacterial infection. It is important to note that Pekka and the medical team have not encountered any setbacks in his recovery and rehabilitation.

However, as we have realized and learned throughout this process, the recovery and rehabilitation from a bacterial infection does not involve a specific timetable. It does come with a degree of uncertainty.

To that end, and in taking every possible precaution to insure the bacterial infection is managed and controlled with a goal of returning Pekka to full strength, the doctors have recommended Pekka remain on limited activity for two weeks before considering more strenuous activity in his recovery and rehabilitation.

While we were cautiously optimistic Pekka might begin activities now, our primary concern has been, and is, for the long-term. We – Pekka, the team, doctors and our fans – want the same thing and that is for Pekka to be at 100 percent and back in goal for the Predators as soon as possible. However, we also understand we are dealing with a situation that includes some uncertainty and does not involve a specific timetable for treatment and recovery.

Pekka will continue to be monitored on a daily basis by our medical team. We will provide further updates as warranted.
