Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne recently underwent arthroscopic hip surgery, general manager David Poile said Thursday.
The recovery time is four months, Poile said.
The star netminder saw his numbers drop this season after consecutive years of being named a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, given annually to the NHL’s top goaltender. Rinne had a 2.43 goals against average and .910 save percentage, his lowest numbers since the 2009-10 season.
