Rinne’s contract extended
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.
