Marek Mazanec or Carter Hutton will be sent to the minors after the Predators return to Nashville on Friday.

Nashville acquired Devan Dubnyk from Edmonton on Wednesday and he's expected to serve as the team's number one goaltender while Pekka Rinne remains sidelined. Mazanec has the better numbers of the two, but that doesn't mean that he wouldn't benefit from more playing time in the AHL.

Marek Mazanec allowed four goals on 23 shots Sunday night as the Predators were dumped by Minnesota by a score of 4-0.

Mazanec has been the Predators' best option in goal while Pekka Rinne nurses his hip injury, but that's not saying much considering he holds a 2.80 GAA and a .902 save percentage. His record falls to 8-10-4 with the loss.

Marek Mazanec made 20 saves in the Predators' 2-1 shootout loss to the Senators on Saturday night.

The young netminder gave up a goal late in the second period and came up short in the skills competition. This was Mazanec's finest outing in well over a month, as plus-.900 save percentage performances have been few and far between. He has a 2.75 goals-against average and .904 save percentage this year.

Jan 9 - 10:54 PM

Marek Mazanec improved his record to 8-8-3 on the 2013-14 season thanks to the Nashville Predators' 3-2 win against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.

Considering Barry Trotz's harsh recent comments toward Carter Hutton, it wouldn't be shocking if Mazanec received a longer look in the Nashville net. It's tough to rely on either netminder, or the team as whole, though.

Marek Mazanec was beaten for three goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime defeat at the hands of the Boston Bruins.

Jan 2 - 10:25 PM

Marek Mazanec will be in goal again for Nashville Thursday night.

Although it is not official, we would be very surprised if Marek Mazanec was not in goal Monday night against Detroit.

He played very well in a 3-2 win over the Kings Saturday night and is outplaying Carter Hutton at the moment. Mazanec also shut out the Wings 2-0 earlier in the season.

With his strong game against the Kings Saturday night Marek Mazanec may have earned a few more starts.

Preds' coach Barry Trotz was certainly impressed with his young goaltender's effort. "I think he [Mazanec] made some timely saves when he needed to, and he was calm back there," Trotz said. "From our standpoint, it was a culmination of solid goaltending and a desperate, competitive team going against a fresh, veteran team." Mazanec should be in line to start against the Red Wings on Monday.
