The Nashville Predators have recalled goaltending prospect Juuse Saros from the AHL Milwaukee Admirals today, reports Adam Vingan of the Tennessean. Current backup Marek Mazanec is reassigned to the AHL.
Saros forced the Predators’ hand after dominating in the AHL. His .949 SV% and 1.59 GAA is second amongst all goaltenders. He won his sixth straight start last night against the Grand Rapids Griffins, and is now 9-1-0 overall.
Marazec, on the other hand, has not fared so well. In three games for the Predators he’s posted a dreadful .809 SV% and a 5.44 GAA. His AHL stats are slightly better as he earned a .849 Sv% and a 3.90 GAA in his two games in Milwaukee.
