2014-15 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

Normally a very reliable fantasy selection, 2013-14 was not the season to be a Rinne owner, as he missed nearly four months of the season with a hip injury, then split time with backup Carter Hutton once he returned to the lineup. Overall, Rinne played in just 24 games last ...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Rinne was once again a workhorse between the pipes for the Predators last season, tying for second in the league in games played (43) and games started (42). His five shutouts tied him for first with four other goalies, however his 15 wins put him way down the list in that category. Pound for pound, Rinne remains one of the NHL's most talented netminders, but playing for an offensively-challenged team like the Preds means he will be in tough to get a win on any given night. Rinne is a great pick if your league rewards for peripheral goalie stats such as GAA and SV%. But for wins-only leagues, he's a bit of a risk.

2012-13

Rinne cemented his status as one of the NHLís elite goaltenders last season, posting a career-high 43 wins. He also ranked among the league leaders in save percentage (.923) and goals-against average (2.39). Along with Shea Weber, Rinne remains one of the cornerstones of the Predators franchise, having inked a seven-year, $49 million contract with the team in November 2011, meaning heís going to be around a long time. Draft with confidence.

2011-12

In 2011-12, Rinne will enter the second and final season of a two-year, $6.8 million contract. Last season, he was second among NHL goalies in SV% (.930) and third in SV% (2.12). However, there were 14 other goalies who had at least as many wins (33) as Rinne, the result of playing for the offensively-challenged Predators. From a fantasy perspective, expect Rinne to remain solid in the aforementioned peripheral stat categories this upcoming season, but he will likely still be challenged as far as wins are concerned, unless the Preds can somehow squeeze more offense out of their forward lines.

2010-11

Rinne started out the season in a platoon situation with Dan Ellis for the job of #1 netminder in Nashville. However, thanks to a solid run in March that saw him win six consecutive games, Rinne eventually became the main man between the pipes for the Preds, and was a big reason why the team managed to grab the seventh playoff spot in the Western Conference. Before the season was even over, the Preds all but anointed Rinne their #1 starter going forward, signing him to a new two-year, $6.8 million contract in February and allowing Ellis to sign with Tampa Bay in the offseason. Rinne is considered one of the better young goalies in the NHL right now, but he is probably a year or two away from entering "elite" status. Don't overpay to get him on draft day.

2009-10

Rinne burst onto the scene for the Predators in 2008, first splitting starts with incumbent starter Dan Ellis, then taking the starting job through the force of his abilities. He ended up playing in 52 games, posting 29 wins, a 2.38 GAA, a .917 SV%, and seven shutouts. Now that the job is his, more wins seems likely and the GAA and SV% should remain fine. The seven shutouts might not be repeated, but he should be one of the best goalies in the league anyway.

2008-09

The Finnish goalie only has three NHL games under his belt, but he is ready to become the backup in Nashville. With the departure of Chris Mason, Rinne has been bumped up the ladder to the backup role. He has made quite an impression on the coaching staff in his time as the No. 1 net minder for the Admirals of the AHL. Rinne appeared in 65 games for Milwaukee last season and posted a 36-24-3 record with a strong 2.47 GAA and steady .908 save percentage. The prospect goalie may get a lot of action this season. We expect about 30 starts to keep No. 1 goalie Dan Ellis fresh, but they should be productive starts and he should be worthy of fantasy consideration in very deep leagues.

2007-08

The Finnish goalie only has two NHL games under his belt, but he is ready to become the backup in Nashville. With the departure of Tomas Vokoun, Rinne was bumped up the ladder to the backup role. Rinne has made quite an impression on the coaching staff in his time as the No. 1 net minder for the Admirals of the AHL. Despite missing part of last season with a shoulder injury, Rinne appeared in 29 games for Milwaukee and he posted a 15-7-6 record with a strong 2.34 GAA and stellar .920 save percentage. Rinne may only get about 20 or so starts this season, but they should be productive and he should be worthy of fantasy consideration in very deep leagues.

2006-07

Rinne will probably not make any impact with the Predators this season. Rinne underwent surgery for a dislocated shoulder in early September and will miss half the season. Drafted in the 8th round of the 2004 draft, Rinne served notice last season with AHL affiliate Milwaukee that he will some day be an NHL goalie. He racked up 30 wins with a decent GAA of 2.82 and save percentage of .904 to lead the Admirals to an appearance in the Calder Cup Finals.
