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

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
