Great news for Predators fans!
Two pieces of good news came out today from HockeyTonk. First, Nashville Predators netminder Pekka Rinne has a contract extension. I don't know the details but it should be announced later today. UPDATE: Peks signed for $3.4 mil cap hit over two years. He will make $2.8M the first year and $4M the next year.
2ndly, It is confirmed the Sommet Center will be the Bridgestone Arena. Excellent move. Words can't describe just how important this move is for establishing corporate support in Nashville.
Lastly, there is positive news on Predator's forward Patric Hornqvist who was rocked in the Finland vs. Sweden game last week. It doesn't appear Partic suffered a concussion, but he certainly got his bell rung.
