Date:

Marek Mazanec has been assigned to the minors.

He has appeared in just three NHL contests this season. Mazanec has a 0-2-0 record with a 5.45 goals-against average and an .809 save percentage. He will try to build some confidence in the AHL.
Nov 24 - 12:01 PM

Marek Mazanec was shelled for six goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Mazanec got the start because Pekka Rinne is dealing with an injury, but tonight didn't go well for him and his team. The Leafs scored early and often and never looked back. Mazanec has an 0-2-0 record with a 5.44 goals-against-average and a .809 save percentage this season.
Nov 15 - 10:47 PM

Marek Mazanec will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Mazanec was summoned from the minors on Monday and it was revealed earlier today that Pekka Rinne has a lower-body injury. It's not clear how long Rinne will be sidelined for, but during his absence Mazanec will likely serve as Nashville's number one goalie while Juuse Saros assumes the backup role.
Nov 15 - 1:31 PM

Marek Mazanec has been recalled by Nashville.

He posted a 1-0-1 record in the minors with a 3.90 goals-against average and an .849 save percentage. Juuse Saros has been serving as Nashville's backup netminder, but he hasn't seen any playing time due to Pekka Rinne's hot streak.
Nov 14 - 11:47 AM

Marek Mazanec has been assigned to the minors.

He has appeared in two games with the Predators this season and he hasn't started since Oct. 15 against Chicago. Mazanec will look to develop a rhythm in the AHL before he presumably returns to the big club.
Nov 8 - 11:34 AM

Marek Mazanec gave up five goals on 27 shots Saturday night in a 5-3 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Mazanec spent limited time in the NHL last season, playing only two games with the Predators. His effort in 2013-14 in the big show was not overly impressive with a .902 save percentage in 25 games and 39 games in the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals produced just a .912. Still, a .815 Saturday night was not enough to make him at all fantasy relevant.
Oct 16 - 9:02 AM

Marek Mazanec gets the start against Chicago on Saturday night.

The 25-year-old Mazanec comes in with a career .902 save percentage in just 27 career games. But it does include a win over Chicago in which he turned away 39 of 41 shots. Go figure.
Oct 15 - 8:03 PM

Marek Mazanec was in the Nashville Predators' net during a 4-3 exhibition win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mazanec stopped 23 out of 26 shots for the victory while Juuse Saros backed him up. Mazanec has a lot to gain with a strong preseason, as he's far from guaranteed his place considering his deal is two-way.
Oct 2 - 12:16 AM

Marek Mazanec has inked a one-year, two-way deal with Nashville.

He will make $575,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 if he plays in the AHL next season. Mazanec posted a 19-15-5 record with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage in 39 games with Nashville's AHL affiliate last year. If pending UFA Carter Hutton isn't signed by the Predators then Mazanec could be the Predators' backup goalie in 2016-17.
Jun 13 - 11:19 AM

The Nashville Predators have recalled Marek Mazanec from the AHL.

The 24-year-old was recalled a couple of times this season, but he never got into a game. Both Pekka Rinne and Carter Hutton appear to be healthy and ready to dress for Game 2 which means Mazanec is likely being recalled for insurance purposes.
May 1 - 10:55 AM

Marek Mazanec has been returned to the minors.

The 24-year-old netminder hasn't seen any NHL action this season. He owns a 19-14-5 record with AHL Milwaukee to go with a .916 save percentage and a 2.33 goals-against average.
Apr 11 - 5:25 PM

Marek Mazanec was recalled from Milwaukee of the AHL to back up Carter Hutton Saturday night against Dallas.

Mazanec will be in Nashville for precisely one day as Pekka Rinne is getting a complete day off and not even dressing for the contest. Needless to say, there is no fantasy value here.
Apr 9 - 12:25 PM

With Carter Hutton's activation off I/R, Marek Mazanec has been returned to AHL Milwaukee.

Mazanec didn't see any ice time this go-around with the Predators, and has just a pair of games since playing in 25 during the 2013-14 season. Mazanec is 2-2-1 with 16 goals against for Milwaukee this season.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 02:38:00 PM

Marek Mazanec has been called up on an emergency basis.

Carter Hutton is dealing with an undisclosed ailment, so Pekka Rinne owners can breathe a sigh of relief. Mazanec has a 2-2-1 record with a 3.09 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage in five games with Milwaukee this year.
