Predators G Pekka Rinne to remain sidelined at least a few more weeks following hip surgery

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Predators goalie Pekka Rinne, out since last month with a hip injury, had an MRI earlier in the week and hasn't had any setbacks.

Rinne had surgery on his left hip May 9 and recovered in time to start the season. He then had arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 24 because of a bacterial infection in his hip.

The team said he will remain on crutches and antibiotics for at least the next couple of weeks before another MRI later this month. In a statement Sunday, the Predators say they "expect a full and complete recovery."

Rinne is 4-4-1 with a 2.31 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage for Nashville this season.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
