On Wednesday, the Nashville Predators announced they will retire Pekka Rinne’s jersey in February 2022.

Today is, no doubt purposefully, Pekka Rinne’s birthday.

He will be the first player in Predators history to have his jersey retired.

Rinne skated in 683 contests for the Predators, posting 60 shutouts and 369 wins.

This is quite exciting for Nashville’s most-loved player.
