As a follow-up to Pekka Rinne’s MRI earlier this month, we indicated Dec. 20 as a date for further update and next steps relative to Pekka’s recovery from a bacterial infection. It is important to note that Pekka and the medical team have not encountered any setbacks in his recovery and rehabilitation.
However, as we have realized and learned throughout this process, the recovery and rehabilitation from a bacterial infection does not involve a specific timetable. It does come with a degree of uncertainty.
