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.

Marek Mazanec signed a one-year, two-way contract with Nashville on Wednesday.

His new deal will pay him $575,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the AHL level. Mazaenc will compete with Carter Hutton for the Predators' backup goaltender job in 2015-16. He appeared in just two games with Nashville this past season and made 25 appearances in 2013-14 because of Pekka Rinne's hip issue.

Marek Mazanec has been returned to the minors.

The move indicates that Pekka Rinne is ready to return and he could be back in the lineup as soon as Thursday's meeting with Anaheim. Mazanec appeared to two games and started one during his stint with the Predators. He posted a 0-1-0 record with a .915 save percentage and a 2.26 goals-against average.

Marek Mazanec allowed three goals on 28 shots in Friday's 3-0 loss to Colorado.

Despite the three goals, the third was an empty netter, Mazanec put forth a solid effort. He helped kill off four power plays and was only beaten while heavily shielded. Not too shabby for a goalie who now has just 23 career NHL starts. He's now 8-11-4 with a .915 save percentage and 2.26 GAA in 27 career games.

Marek Mazanec will face the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.

Mazanec has just 47 minutes of playing time with Nashville this season, in which he turned away 18 of 20 shots. However last season he was part of the carousal trying to soak up Pekka Rinne's starts after the all-world netminder went down. Mazanec compiled an 8-10-4 record with 64 goals against in 25 games last season.

Marek Mazanec has been summoned from the minors.

He was expected to rejoin the Predators after the All-Star break because Pekka Rinne is still out with knee injury. Mazanec could get more opportunities to play if Carter Hutton can't handle the workload.

Marek Mazanec was sent back to AHL Milwaukee on Wednesday.

He was brought up because of an injury to number one goalie Pekka Rinne and he's expected to return to the Predators after the All-Star break. Mazanec made his season debut after Carter Hutton was pulled against Detroit on Jan. 17. He stopped 18 of the 20 shots he faced in a 5-2 loss for Nashville.
Thu, Jan 22, 2015 02:40:00 PM

Marek Mazanec gave up two goals on 20 shots in the Predators’ loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night.

Mazanec entered in relief of Carter Hutton, who yielded three goals on the first four shots he faced in 12:32. Mazanec had not started in the NHL since Jan. 12, 2014, so this was a pretty good performance from the 23-year-old. He had a 2.49 goals-against average and .907 save percentage in the AHL before his recall.

Marek Mazanec has been summoned from the minors.

Pekka Rinne won't be back until after the All-Star break, so Mazanec will join Carter Hutton as Nashville's goaltenders. Mazanec has been superb in the AHL of late and could get some action during his recall.
Thu, Jan 15, 2015 01:03:00 PM

The Predators assigned Marek Mazanec to Milwaukee of the AHL.

Carter Hutton will stay in Nashville and duke it out for playing time with newly-acquired Devan Dubnyk. Mazanec could be the Preds' goalie of the future and the team obviously wanted him playing every game.
