04:29 PM ET 10.24 | On Thursday, the Nashville Predators announced that goaltender, Pekka Rinne, will undergo arthroscopic hip surgery. His timetable to return is unknown at this time, however, it has been said that Rinne will be out for at least four weeks while recovering. Playing in net in place of Rinne will be Magnus Hellerg, who was called up from Milwaukee. It is going to be hard for Nashville to play at least four weeks without Rinne in goal. He's been a key asset to the organization, and has been one of the best goaltenders in the league.

Tough break. Hate to see it for a great organization that continuously overachieves.

With their lack of offense this could be a real tragedy for their season.

is arthroscopic a euphemism for "catheter"?

LOL - And every guy on FN just winced. :-)

If it was Joffrey Lupul they'd use a speculum.

Right now I'm kinda thinking the Jets would be better off if OP had four or five weeks on the IR right now. Really starting to wonder what Montoya and Pascale have to do to get a real shot at #1. If Noel has a glaring failing - it's his ability not to go completely ballistic about incosistency.
