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'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
