Pekka Rinne out a minimum of four weeks with a hip scope, Predators recall Magnus Hellberg


Oct 24, 2013


Bad news broke this morning for the Nashville Predators as it appears that Pekka Rinne will be out for a minimum of four weeks with a hip scope. Rinne currently has a 4-4-1 record for the Predators and has looked progressively better in net after his first two starts of the season, going 4-2-1 in his past seven.

Via the Nashville Predators PR department:

“Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Magnus Hellberg (MAG-nuhs HEL-buhrg) from Milwaukee (AHL) under emergency conditions.

Hellberg, 22 (4/4/91), in three starts this season, has posted a 1-2-0 record, a 2.23 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. In his first North American professional season in 2012-13, the Uppsala, Sweden native tied for second among AHL goaltenders in shutouts (6), while ranking fourth in goals-against average (2.14) and save percentage (.924). He also ranked third in 2013 Calder Cup Playoffs goals-against average (1.69) and save percentage (.944).

Nashville’s first choice, 38th overall (second round), in the 2011 Entry Draft, the 6-6, 195-pounder is on Twitter @Mulle45.”
