Pekka Rinne has been struggling in the crease as of late, but he’ll likely always be beloved in Nashville anyway. Just two years removed from a Vezina Trophy, Rinne has been a staple in the Predators blue paint for nearly a decade and a half.
In response to the devastating tornadoes that passed through Tennessee, Rinne gave the state another reason to love him even more.
The most refreshing part of stories like this is that he was simply seen doing it. It’s not like there was a massive press conference, he didn’t post it anywhere on social media himself. He just wanted to do a good deed for the city and state that has treated him so well, and he didn’t need any attention or recognition for it.
Similar to when Matt Dumba helped out a stranded driver recently, Rinne just wanted to do the right thing.
