Coming off his first Vezina Trophy, Rinne will begin the year with a 3-1-0 record, a 1.75 goals-against-average and .943 save percentage.

Saros is thought of as being the goaltender of the future in Nashville and will start the year with a 2-0-0 record, a 2.50 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage.

The 25-year-old Swedish winger is now up to three goals and five points in five games this season. Arvidsson picked up his assist on Filip Forsberg’s second goal of the season.

The league suspended Watson for 27 games after he plead no contest in July to misdemeanor domestic assault. An arbitrator has since reviewed the case and reduced his punishment to 18 games.
