Rinne signs with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL

According to the agent for Nashville's Pekka Rinne, the Predators goalie signed Tuesday with Dinamo Minsk of the Kontinental Hockey League for the duration of the work stoppage.

Rinne, 29, led the NHL with 43 wins last season. He went 43-18-8 with a 2.39 goals-against average, .923 save percentage and five shutouts, and was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy. He also posted a 2.07 GAA and .929 save percentage in 10 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
