RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After spending two seasons with Hameenlinna in the Finnish Elite League (2013-15), Saros made his transition to North America last season and posted outstanding numbers for the AHL Milwaukee Admirals, finishing 29-8-0 with a 2.24 goals-against average and .920 save percentage. Saros is currently expected to start the 2016-17 season back in Milwaukee, with fellow rookie Marek Mazanec likely to get the nod as Pekka Rinne's backup. However, if Mazanec falters, the Preds won't hesitate to give Saros a look. "I have no fear that if [Mazanec] doesn't do it that Saros can do it," Preds GM David Poile said at the team's Development Camp back in June. It may take another season or two for him to arrive, but currently it looks like Saros and Mazanec are the Preds' future between the pipes once the 33-year-old Rinne's career starts to wind down.
