Nashville Predators News

The Predators have signed Colton Sissons to a seven-year contract extension worth $20.0 million ($2.857M AAV).

Sissons set career-bests in goals (15) and points (30) in 75 games a season go. Sissons is an integral part of the Predators bottom-6, ranking second on the team in faceoffs (53.1 percent), first among Predators forwards in SH TOI/GM (1:59) and hits (109). It is the type of contract you don’t see very often for a player with Sissons role but the Predators are making a long-term commitment to him.

The Predators acquired Steven Santini, Jeremy Davies, a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 second-round pick from the Devils for P.K. Subban.

Santini, who is a former second-round pick (2013), is a big (6-foot-2, 205 lbs) defensive-defenseman. The 24-year-old has just 21 points (5G / 16A) in 114 career NHL games but should be more than capable of eating up 15 minutes per night on the Predators third pairing.

The Predators have acquired Connor Ingram from the Lightning for a 2021 seventh-round pick.

Ingram, who was selected in the third-round (No.88 overall) in 2016, split his 2018-19 season between the AHL and ECHL. The 22-year-old was 14-7-0 with a 2.26 GAA and .922 SV% with Syracuse (AHL) and 8-2-0 with a 2.81 GAA and .914 SV% with Orlando (ECHL). With Pekka Rinne entering his age-37 season, Ingram could serve as the Predators’ future No.2 behind Juuse Saros.

The Predators have signed Jarred Tinordi to a two-year, two-way contract.

Tinordi spent the entire 2018-19 season with Milwaukee (AHL), where he had eight goals and 14 assists (22 points) in 75 games. Tinordi will likely be one of the first defenseman called-up if the Predators run into any injury concerns next season. He has six assists in 53 career NHL games with the Canadiens and Coyotes.

Rinne game up five goals on 26 shots in the Predators 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 5. After a hot-start to the playoffs, Rinne has give up a combined nine goals on just 34 shots (.735 SV%) in the last two games. The series now shifts back to Dallas where Rinne turned in a sparking 40-save performance in a Game 3 win but was also pulled just 14 minutes into a Game 4 blowout loss. If Nashville wants to keep their season alive, Rinne will need to be at his best tonight.

Rinne led the Predators onto the ice for warmups for Game 5.

Rinne was pulled after allowing four goals on eight shots in the Predators 5-1 loss in Dallas in Game 4.

The series heads back to Nashville, where Rinne stopped 48 of the 52 shots (.923 SV%) in the first two games of the series.

Rinne will start Game 3 in Dallas.

Rinne stooped 22 of 23 shots in the Predators 2-1 overtime win in Game 2. Rinne has been far less busy than Ben Bishop through two games but has played just as well, stopping 48 of the 52 shots (.923 SV%) that he has faced so far. Rinne was solid on the road this year, posting a .915 SV% in 27 appearances, so the series shifting to Dallas should not affect him too much.
