NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Nashville Predators signed goalie Pekka Rinne on Monday just days after they dealt No. 1 netminder Tomas Vokoun to the Florida Panthers.
Rinne, 24, who signed a two-year contract, spent last season with Milwaukee of the AHL.
Vokoun was traded on Friday, a few hours before the NHL draft. Chris Mason is expected to take over as the Predators' top goalie next season.
The Predators also said Monday they traded minor league forward Brandon Segal to the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations.
