The Predators had hoped Rinne could pick up his rehabilitation Friday. But the team announced that officials have learned through this process that recovery from a bacterial infection has no specific timetable and a degree of uncertainty.
Rinne is being monitored daily by the team's medical staff. The team says in a statement that the main goal remains getting Rinne back to full strength.
The goalie has been sidelined since he had arthroscopic surgery on his left hip Oct. 24 as a result of a bacterial infection. The infection developed in the same hip that was surgically repaired May 9 following the conclusion of last season.
