He will be the first player in Predators history to have his jersey retired.
But don’t ignore the beauty of announcing this on Pekka Rinne’s birthday.
Rinne signed two of his contracts on his birthday, so it’s almost like it’s a day that means a lot to him.

Rinne skated in 683 contests for the Predators, posting 60 shutouts and 369 wins.
This is quite exciting for Nashville’s most-loved player.
