News: Mazanec was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Wednesday, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Impact: Mazanec's return to the minors indicates that the Predators expect Pekka Rinne (knee) to be available in some capacity Wednesday, though it has yet to be determined if the netminder will start or back up Carter Hutton. In any case, his return means that Mazanec's run with Nashville will end after he logged just two appearances. He'll be able to play more regularly at Milwaukee, where he posted a 2.41 GAA and .909 save percentage prior to his call-up.

News: Mazanec gave up two goals on 27 shots in Friday's loss to Colorado.
Impact: It was a good effort from Mazanec, who got no offensive support in the shutout loss. It was the first start of the season for the 23-year-old, who had been giving way to Carter Hutton in Pekka Rinne's (knee) absence. Considering Hutton has given up seven goals in his last two starts, Mazanec could be worth a temporary pickup until Rinne returns.

News: Mazanec will be in net for Friday's game against the Avalanche, Predators radio announcer Willy Daunic reports.
Impact: Friday's contest will serve as the 23-year-old goaltender's NHL debut. However, it won't be the first NHL game action Mazanec's seen, as he turned in a solid performance in relief of Carter Hutton on Jan. 17 against the Red Wings. Mazanec is 13-9-0 with a 2.41 GAA and a .909 save percentage through 25 games with AHL Milwaukee this season.
