Predators Recall Pekka Rinne From Conditioning Assignment

- Purchase two upper level tickets for $35 in honor of Rinne’s return to Smashville -

Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that goaltender Pekka Rinne has been recalled from his weekend conditioning assignment with Milwaukee (AHL). After missing 51 games, the two-time Vezina Trophy finalist is expected to start when Nashville takes on the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow night (7 p.m. CT, FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game).

Rinne, 31 (11/3/82), stopped 33-of-35 shots against to post a 0.99 goals-against average and a .946 save percentage in a pair of games with the Admirals last weekend, winning both starts. In his last five NHL games prior to his injury, Rinne was 3-1-1 with a 1.60 goals-against average and a .937 save percentage – turning away 120-of-128 shots in those contests. The two-time Vezina Trophy finalist has been among the League’s elite since becoming a full-time starter in 2008-09, ranking first in shutouts and among the Top 10 in wins, save percentage and goals-against average prior to his current injury. He is one of just two netminders in franchise history to appear in 300 games for the club, and is just four wins shy of tying Tomas Vokoun's mark for most wins by a goaltender (157; Vokoun, 161).

In celebration of Pekka Rinne’s return to Bridgestone Arena, the Nashville Predators are offering a special deal of two upper level tickets for $35 for the Preds game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday at 7 p.m. CT (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game). Twice Daily Fan Zone ticket specials are also available for Tuesday’s game. For $105, fans will receive two lower bowl tickets and a $5 voucher good at Twice Daily/Daily’s, or for $55, fans will receive two upper bowl tickets and a $5 voucher good at Twice Daily/Daily’s. A limited number of tickets still remain, for more information about either ticket special, visit the Bridgestone Arena Box Office or call 615-770-7800.
