Mazanec was demoted on Nov. 24 after he struggled in three contests with Nashville. He then posted a 2.73 GAA and .886 save percentage in five AHL games. He'll serve as Pekka Rinne's understudy while goalie Juuse Saros returns to the AHL so that he can play more regularly.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Nov 8, 2016 11:34:00 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.

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.
Sat, Oct 15, 2016 08:03:00 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.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 12:16:00 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.
