RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
In January of last season, Mazanec was called up briefly by the Preds to back up Carter Hutton when regular starter Pekka Rinne went down with a sprained knee. Mazanec performed solidly in the two games in which he appeared, posting a 2.26 GAA and .915 save percentage, but otherwise spent the rest of the season putting up so-so numbers at AHL Milwaukee (18-18-0, 2.76 GAA, .900 save percentage). With Rinne signed long-term and Hutton having since emerged as a very capable backup, Mazanec figures to remain in the AHL for the foreseeable future, unless the Preds deal him to another team where his path to the NHL is more immediate.
