Nashville Predators sign goalie Marek Mazanec to entry-level deal.

The Nashville Predators on Friday signed goaltender Marek Mazanec to a two-year, entry-level contract.

Mazanec, a sixth-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, recently led Plzen to its first Czech League title by stopping 48 of 51 shots in a Game 7 double-overtime victory. He ranked fourth in 2013 playoff goals-against average (2.13) and sixth in save percentage (.932), in addition to tying for second in shutouts (2).

During the 2012-13 regular season, the 6-4, 189-pound native of Pisek, Czech Republic ranked sixth in the Czech Extraliga in goals-against average (2.49).

The 21-year-old also represented the Czech Republic at the 2011 World Junior Championship and the 2009 World Under-19 Championship.
