Predators send Mazanec to AHL
Nashville Predators send Marek Mazanec to AHL.

The Nashville Predators on Friday sent goaltender Marek Mazanec to the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Mazanec was the NHL's rookie of the month in November, when he won five of six decisions in one stretch and allowed two goals or less in eight consecutive games.

Overall, Mazanec is 8-10-4 with a 2.80 goals-against average and .902 save percentage. He has also won all five of his starts with the Admirals, posting a 1.97 GAA and .933 save percentage.

The Predators acquired goaltender Devan Dubnyk from the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday and also have Carter Hutton as they wait for veteran Pekka Rinne to recover from a hip infection.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
