Dekanich, 24 (5/10/86), will be making his second 2010-11 appearance with the Predators – he backed up rookie netminder Anders Lindback
for three games during a five-day recall to Nashville from Oct. 12-17. The North Vancouver, B.C., native has posted three shutouts in his last eight starts for the Admirals, and recently set a franchise record with a 209:31 shutout streak from Nov. 7-18. Nashville’s third choice (146th overall) in the 2006 Entry Draft is ranked second in the League in shutouts (3) and wins (tie, 10), in addition to fourth in save percentage (.941) and goals-against average (1.71).
The Predators are back in action on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena (7 p.m. CT, 102.9 FM The Buzz), playing host to Eric Staal and the Carolina Hurricanes. Saturday’s game is Fellowship Night, designed to not only bring heart-pounding Predators action but also a great environment to spend time with family and friends outside of church. Each Fellowship Night features Christian recording artists performing from the Band Stage during intermissions as well as ticket discounts, food vouchers, church names on the Megatron and preferred seating for groups of 15 or more.
Tickets are still available for Saturday’s contest and may be purchased at the Bridgestone Arena box office, by calling (615) 770-PUCK (7825) or online via ticketmaster.com or nashvillepredators.com.
