After Juuse Saros recorded his 100th regular season win for the Nashville Predators, coach John Hynes said "it's great" for the organisation to have such a "dependable" goalie.
The Predators, 20/1 to win the Stanley Cup, needed 30 saves from 26-year-old Saros on Tuesday to beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 and improve to 4-01 in their past five games.
Finn Saros was drafted by the Predators in the fourth-round of the 2013 NHL draft. His 100 wins have come in 193 regular season games (100-58-20) over seven years.
This season, Saros has played 38 times with 24 victories (joint-second most in the NHL) and has a .927 save-percentage and 2.35 goals-against-average (GAA).
In his 193 regular season games, Saros has a .922 career save-percentage and 2.36 GAA.
Saros has also appeared in the play-offs 17 times (10 starts) and has a .914 save-percentage and 2.63 GAA.
Now the bona-fide number one in Nashville, Saros committed his future to the Predators signing a four-year contract in August 2021.
Along with partner David Rittich who has three wins in six starts, the Predators have a 28-14-4 record which sits second in the Central Division.
Hynes, in a third season with Nashville said about Saros: "He's a humble guy. He works hard. He's tremendously talented. He plays very consistent, he's very dependable.
"It's a great feather in his cap to get the 100 wins, and I think it's great for the organisation that you have a guy like him that's your lead dog in net."
