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 seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
