Predators goalie Pekka Rinne's recovery delayed 2 weeks

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Predators goalie Pekka Rinne's recovery from a hip infection will be at least two weeks slower with doctors recommending Rinne continue limiting his activity.

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.
