Jussi Rynnas has been placed on unconditional waivers by the Dallas Stars.

Rynnas has reportedly agreed to join Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL, so this move will help pave the way for him to leave the Stars and play in Europe next season.

Jussi Rynnas has reportedly signed with the KHL's Ak Bars Kazan.

Rynnas had a 2.53 GAA and .920 save percentage in 39 AHL contests. He also appeared in two games with Dallas, but posted a 4.57 GAA and .841 save percentage. He turned 28 years old in May, so the odds of him ever establishing himself as a backup in the NHL were remote.

Jussi Rynnas has been reassigned to AHL Texas.

He served as Kari Lehtonen's backup while Anders Lindback was in the minors on a conditioning assignment. Rynnas didn't play during his latest NHL stint.

Jussi Rynnas has been called up by the Dallas Stars.

Jussi Rynnas will serve as Kari Lehtonen's understudy while Anders Lindback participates in a conditioning stint with the AHL Texas Stars. Rynnas isn't likely to get much, if any, playing time during his stint with Dallas.

The Dallas Stars have assigned Jussi Rynnas to the minors.

The 27-year-old played in two games for the Stars this season. He is 0-1-0 with a 4.54 goals-against-average and a .841 save percentage.

Jussi Rynnas allowed five goals on 29 shots in his first start as a Dallas Star on Thursday night.

The Stars lost 5-2 to the Red Wings, their fourth straight loss. Although it was a rocky start, Rynnas should get more chances to redeem himself as team waived backup goaltender Anders Lindback on Dec. 3.

Jussi Rynnas should be considered Dallas' probable starter for Thursday's game versus Detroit.

He left the ice first at the team's morning skate Kari Lehtonen stayed out late with some of the team's likely scratches. The Stars just recalled Rynnas on Wednesday to serve as the club's backup netminder.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 01:29:00 PM

Jussi Rynnas has been promoted by the Dallas Stars.

Rynnas has a 2.58 GAA and .913 save percentage in 10 AHL games in 2014-15. Anders Lindback has been waived by the Stars, so Rynnas might spend the rest of the season in the NHL.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 12:15:00 PM

Jussi Rynnas was placed on waivers Monday, but he could still stick with the team if he clears.

The Stars play their final preseason game Tuesday against Tampa Bay and Kari Lehtonen has a mild concussion. The fact that he was put on the waivers means that Anders Lindback has likely won the backup job, though.

Goaltender Jussi Rynnas looked great in scrimmage on Saturday.

Rynnas is trying to knock Anders Lindback out of the backup job in Dallas and if yesterday's performance is any indication, he has a great chance. Stay tuned as the Stars inked Rynnas to a two-year/one-way contract in the summer. He had a 1.51 GAA and a .939 save percentage last season in 40 Finnish Elite League games.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 11:53:00 AM

Jussi Rynnas' newly inked two-year contract is only one-way.

That's interesting as it leaves the Stars with three goaltenders on one-way contracts, including Kari Lehtonen and Anders Lindback. That being said, Rynnas is only set to earn $550,000 next season and $575,000 in 2015-16, so the Stars can still comfortably bury him in the minors. Given that he has a one-way contract, it seems fair to assume that he'll compete with Lindback for the backup job during the preseason, but Lindback should be regarded as the favorite in that battle.
Tue, Jul 8, 2014 12:18:00 PM

Jussi Rynnas has inked a two-year deal with the Dallas Stars.

Rynnas had a 1.51 GAA and .939 save percentage in 40 Finnish league games last season. He's expected to start the 2014-15 campaign in the minors.

Jussi Rynnas is reportedly interested in signing with a North American team this summer.

Rynnas left the Maple Leafs for Finland after being unable to earn a regular spot in the NHL. However, his value has gone up after the 27-year-old posted a 1.51 GAA and .939 save percentage in 40 Finnish league games.
Wed, Jun 18, 2014 03:49:00 PM

Jussi Rynnas has been returned to the AHL's Toronto Marlies by the Maple Leafs.

The 25-year-old keeper saw just over 10 minutes of ice time during his call-up to the big club. Rynnas made six saves on six shots in a relief appearance of Ben Scrivens on Feb. 19 against Tampa Bay. The Leafs activated James Reimer on Wednesday, which resulted in Rynnas' demotion.
