Sunday Sports - - SPORTS - — Post­media wire ser­vices

The Nashville Preda­tors have signed goal­tender Pekka Rinne to a two-year con­tract ex­ten­sion worth $10 mil­lion, keep­ing the Vez­ina Tro­phy win­ner un­der con­tract through 2020-21.

Gen­eral man­ager David Poile an­nounced the ex­ten­sion Satur­day on Rinne’s 36th birth­day, a cou­ple hours be­fore the Preda­tors host the Bos­ton Bru­ins.

The Vez­ina Tro­phy win­ner in June, in his fourth time as a fi­nal­ist, will earn $6 mil­lion in 2019-20 and $4 mil­lion in 2020-21.

Poile says both the Preda­tors and Rinne want to keep the goalie with the fran­chise for his en­tire ca­reer and this ex­ten­sion helps meet that goal.
