Episode 154 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features recently retired Nashville Predators icon Pekka Rinne.
In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Rinne talks about the decision to hang them up this summer following a legendary 15-season career as the face of the franchise in Nashville, and how he went from a street hockey goalie in his native Finland, to an eighth round pick in 2004, to a Vezina Trophy winner and three-time All Star in the NHL. Rinne talks about that legendary glove hand and it’s roots in Pessapallo (Finnish baseball), how wanting to stay engaged in low shot games led to scoring a goalie goal in 2020, his early influences, what he learned from Juuse Saros and why it was important to him to help Saros take his job as the Predators No. 1. It’s a great review of an incredible career for an even better person as he gets ready to have his No. 35 retired in Nashville in February.
All that, plus a return trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for more great sales.
